THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 




Charles Anthony Goessmann 



T WAS June thirteenth, eighteen hundred and twenty-seven. Europe was 
in the midst of a period of keenest intellectual activity. The social, 
commercial, and scientific world was rapidly evolving new ways of 
thinking and living. 

The National Guard of France was disbanded in this year, Germany having 
driven Napoleon, the "Scourge of Europe," from her borders fourteen years before. 
In this year Pestalozzi died, after bringing universal reform into the methods of 
teaching youth. Liebig, in the little town of Giessen, in 1824, had established, against 
strong opposition, the "laboratory" method of teaching. 

In dear old Gottingen, Friedrich Wohler had proven the nonexistence of that 
ignis fatuus of centuries of fruitless study and research, the "force of life." And 
this discovery alone, published in 1828, served to turn the entire world of thought 
into new channels. 

These were stirring times, and this was a noble year in which to be born. One 
born in this year the Germans might well designate as " woblgeboren." And so, 
in Naumburg in Hesse-Cassel, on the above-named day, was Karl Anton Goessmann 
woblgeboren. 

The story of his life should become familiar to every M. A. C. man, even to 
the newest. In this small space, however, merely the main facts may be presented, 
and even the}' only in the most compressed form. 

After taking a high school course (German gymnasium) at Fritzlar, he went 
to study with Friedrich Wohler in Gottingen. On graduating as Doctor of Philos- 
ophy there in 1853, he served as privat dozent, and was promoted to be professor 
extraordinarius. 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



After an extended trip through Europe, in 1857 he came to America and was 
respectively chemist and manager of the Eastwick Sugar Refinery in Philadelphia, 
chemist to the Onondaga Salt Company in Syracuse, and Professor of Chemistry 
in the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy. Since 1867 he has been Professor 
of Chemistry in this college, and since 1877 chemist, director, and honorary director 
of the Massachusetts Agricultural Experiment Station. To his many other posi- 
tions and commissions and the reports and papers written by him, only this reference 
can now be made. It seems appropriate here to mention other features of his career 
which, perhaps, appeal in a more general way to our college circle. 

Fortunately, steady habits and a systematic life have laid the foundation for a 
vigorous continuation of the years of study and of counsel which he now, as ever, 
generously and graciously offers to all. His past with its fullness is ours, but it is 
incumbent on all who claim to be students, to make sure that we read not only the 
significance of what has been, but also the significance . of what is now and ot 
what is to be, in this continued association. 

Many of us, even yet, fail to realize what our relationship to Professor Goess- 
mann really means. It means that through him M. A. C. men are brought into 
intimate association with the lives and the work of the great achievers in science of 
the nineteenth century. When we consider that his lectures and talks and social 
intercourse bring us closely into the companionship of the builders of scientific agri- 
culture as it is today, we cannot fail to be thrilled and aroused. 

The intimacy of Goessmann and Wohler has been referred to. Wohler we may 
look upon as a center of influence from which radiated the light of experimental 
knowledge, especially in chemistry and agriculture, during the last seventy-five years 

It was in Berzelius's laboratory in Sweden that Wohler, as a boy, found the 
inspiration which he transmitted to many a worker in the field of science. For forty- 
four years Wohler and Liebig, on terms of intimate friendship, carried on a correspond- 
ence which covers seven hundred and fifty printed pages. 

Another group of these men, or rather sub-group, made up of American 
cotemporaries of Professor Goessmann in Gottingen, is especially interesting to us. It 
included Professors Joy and Chandler of Columbia University, Caldwell of Cornell, 
Mallett of the University of Virginia, and our own President Clark. These all, by 



THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



the largeness of their lives and the effectiveness of their work, attest the significance 
of the Gottingen laboratory. 

It was from this great laboratory, from this fervid crucible, which refined many 
of the crudities of the old agriculture from which has grown the beautiful system of 
today, that Professor Goessmann came with his message to us. 

A great responsibility rests with the men of this college. The old watchword 
"noblesse oblige" stands to us who have enjoyed so great an inheritance from these 
men of blood and iron and of achievement in Scientific Agriculture. 

Among M. A. C. men it used to be the mode to bend all energies to "go to 
Gottingen" for a course of study in the Wohler-Goessmann school. This seems 
now to be an outgrown fashion. Would not the return of such an AuswanJeru.no 
yield to the younger men, also, a rich experience? Wohler's laboratory was the train- 
ing school and the fruitful workshop of many of the great chemists who during the 
century-ends have finished, or are finishing, their work. A list of their names, too 
long for our use, shows an army of fighters for progress of great brilliancy. 

One contribution which Professor Goessmann has brought into our lives, and 
which is very difficult to explain, may be referred to as the German sociality, a quality 
of which we Yankees know little, but which contributes largely to make up the charm of 
the life of the real Germans, even though they be in a frosty New England town. 

Possibly the power of the Germans as investigators and teachers takes 
its source here. They live in gardens. This very name comes to us from them. They 
have not only kitchen gardens, flower gardens, and fruit gardens, but still other kinds, 
unfamiliar to us. They love the meadows, the woods, the brooks, the flowers, the 
birds. Every one of these has a German name, not a foreign name, and in turn, 
they name themselves from these, their bosom friends. Walter of the Bird-Meadow. 
John Sebastian Brook, Martin Cabbagebloom witness thereto. 

A German farmer regards his wheatfield with an affection unknown to us. 
The German teacher studies and teaches how to raise a crop, not primarily because 
of the dollars it will yield, but because it brings intimate communion with nature, 
the mother of us all. It expels conceit and artificiality. It produces natural men. 
I [ere must be oik- reason why the old nun refer as thev do, with affection, to the teach- 
ings ot our friend. 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



As the vacation rambler returns from the mountains and directs reluctant steps 
toward home, his wistful eyes turn manv times backward toward the noble forms, 
which, during the pieceding days and nights, have filled him with strength and 
courage for impending tasks. 

The progress of his journey is marked by the diminishing number of summits 
visible. At first the large assemblage is bewildering. Gradually only the higher and 
nobler remain in view; these become three, then two, and at last the chief alone 
is visible. 

The older students of our college circle have, from time to time, looked back- 
ward on the group of men of w T isdom who started them on their way and guided 
them into the narrow^ path, or at least exhausted human strength in their attempt to 
do so. The distance has lengthened, and in that measure the number ot those heroes 
has diminished, until now but one remains. 



Toward Professor Goessmann "Massachusetts'" men bear a feeling which cannot 
be expressed. Attempts at telling him our high regard have variously been made 
and will continue to be made. In June last came together a remarkable series of 
anniversaries for him and so for us. They were his eightieth birthday, his fiftieth 
year as an American, his fortieth as a "Massachusetts' 7 man, and his thirtieth as 
chemist to the Experiment Station. The united alumni presented him on that 
occasion with a testimonial of appreciation. Smaller groups and individuals, by 
floral and other tokens, by letter and by personal visit, have indicated their regard. 
And now the Undergraduates, through the class appointed to voice college sentiment 
at this time, extend to Professor Goessmann their message of esteem and friendship. 

"What others did at distance hear, 

And guessed within the thicket's gloom, 
Was shown to this philosopher, 

And at his bidding seemed to come." 

Charles Wellington.

Senior Class History 

HAT shall we say of the history of the Class of 1908 ? There is much that 
could be said of prowess and achievement, of joy and exaltation, but the 
days of boasting are past, and, as Seniors, 1908 looks rather into the 
future than into the past. As Freshmen we numbered eighty-eight, and as Seniors 
we number fifty-four, a record which has never been beaten by any class. There has 
been that tenacity of purpose in the members of the class which has put to naught the 
worst efforts of the Math Department to"thin'em out." One characteristic of the 
Class of 1908 has been that each member of the class has had a purpose to work out 
here at Massachusetts Agricultural College, a purpose which would not be frustrated. 
And the same idea of achievement has made itself evident in athletics and other 
college activities. The class claims its share of victories in class contests and has con- 
tributed generously to the support of the varsity teams. And other branches of the 
college life have called upon 1908 for support, and have been met with prompt accept- 
ance of responsibility and faithful service. But the days of boasting are past. Let the 
records ot the years gone by speak for themselves and tell of victories won, of battles 
lost, of joys and sorrows. There are many fond recollections of conquests and 
achievements, innumerable good times, laid by in our hearts to be recalled some- 
time when a quiet circle is gathered about the fire, or warm nights, full of the 
mystery of being, send one's memories stealing among the events of days gone by. 

No, we have not forgotten and shall never forget. But today we look forward 
to the completion of a college course and that which lies beyond, illusive yet fasci- 
nating and full of promise. We believe that we shall be better fitted for future duties 
for having performed our duties here well and conscientiously. The Class of 1908 
has always stood for the best ideals of the college, believing that necessarily those 
ideals must become part of the student body. So, as we pass out of the college circle, 
it is our hope that other classes, too, will endeavor to preserve the college ideals 
intact.

Junior Class History 

HE year that has just passed has been one of well-proportioned pleasure 
and care. Mirth has found its place and left its impress, and dissappoint- 
ment has intruded and left the stamp of strengthened character. On the 
whole, the year is one to which we can look back with a great deal of satisfaction and 
feel that, while we may have overlooked some things, both in and out of the curriculum, 
still, so far as results are concerned, it might easily have been worse. 

As Sophomores we have worried through the two semesters, and, with no greater 
than the usual casualty, the battle against the intrigues of the Faculty has been won, 
and we are now planning other campaigns and conquests. We may have been full 
of a youthful sense of our own importance, which has tended to give us an over- 
appreciation of our rights, but we have endured much also. We have put up with 
Kid through a whole year of chemistry; we have been worked night and day in order 
to get on this side of physics; we have listened to Johnny's jokes and bluffs 
with a great show of bravo; then, too, Prexy's actions have puzzled us at times, 
and we have spent much effort without result in trying to arrive at his point of view. 
Our relations with 1910 have left no reason for regret in our minds, and, without 
doubt, no sense of elation in theirs; for never in any of the many ways in which we 
have met them have they shown themselves to be our equals, and the training 
which they have received at our hands, will leave a lasting impression on their lives, 
and they will look back to this in later years as one of the best parts of their education. 

Our Junior year we have started well, and though our corduroys may not be 
all of the same shade, this does not prove that we are not all of the same mind in 
regard to what is our duty and the correct performance of this duty. We have given, 
we hope, the best that is in us to the college — to athletics, to social life, to the raising 
of its standard of ideals. And now we have presented to you this volume as a memento 
of our earnest effort and sincere loyalty.

Sophomore Class History 




NINETEEN TEN is here once more, not so strong in numbers, perhaps, 
as last year, but with enough spirit to make up for all deficiencies. 

Yes, undoubtedly, they have the spirit, and it stood out good and strong 
in the tug of war that took place soon after college opened. Nineteen Ten is 
a light class, both in weight and numbers, yet it held its own against the great, husky 
Freshman Class, which had two men to our one to choose from. There were thirty- 
seven men on each side of the pond, and each side bound to pull the other thirty-seven 
through the water. As the starting-pistol was fired both sides dropped simultaneously 
and then came what seemed an interminable pause while the men held on with might 
and main, their feet rooted in the turf and every muscle tense. The partisans on the 
side lines, fully alive to the excitement of the situation, urged them on with yells and 
cheers. The long row of struggling forms began to heave together. They pulled 
until their breath came in gasps and their hands became blistered, but, despite the 
terrible strain, the rope moved not more than a few inches either way. At last, after 
twelve long minutes, another pistol shot ended the struggle, and the contest was 
declared a draw. Nineteen Ten had held its own against terrible odds. 

On the football field, too, Ten is there every time, both to practice and to cheer. 
Nineteen Ten has as many men on the field to help the squad along as any class in 
college, and two of its members have already made the varsity. 

The class contests, other than the tug-of-war, have not yet taken place, but 1910 
feels that it has a bright future ahead, and unless the Freshmen have a care, the 
laurel wreaths which they so much covet will all go to the Sophomores. 

They may be light, and they may be few, 

But that they have brains is nothing new, 

As the Freshman banquet last year showed. 

When the sleepy Sophs, to find them, rode 

On a freight car roof, through the tunnel long, 

Only to find the Freshmen gone. 

While, safely housed in a fine hotel, 

Ten scarcely heard the doleful yell 

Of the chagrined Sophs., who had tried in vain 

To catch up with the famous train 

By which the Freshmen got away 

From the watchful Sophs on their banquet day. 

Hurray! Hurra}'! Hurray! Hurray! 

For the Freshmen and their banquet day! 
As yet our Sophomore year is very young, and, consequently, our history is not 
long, but the prospects are for as good a record as the best. May the prophecy be 
fulfilled!

Freshman Class History 

S, ON the opening day of college, we of 191 1 gathered in the chapel,- we 
n were surprised at the extent of our own numbers and the limited supply 
of Sophomores with whom we were expected to contend during the year. 

After being informed of the college rules and customs, we turned our thoughts 
toward the annual tug of war across the pond, which was to take place on the fol- 
lowing day. We held a meeting, selected the best of officers, and put in one good 
practice before the strenuous event was due to come off. Then we felt ready for 
the "Sophs." We were assigned the east side of the pond, the Sophomores having 
chosen the west side. Our friends, the Juniors, got us comfortably settled along 
the rope, while the friends of the "Sophs" were not idle on their side of the pond, 
digging holes for their favorites to brace their feet in. At the sound of the pistol 
both sides dropped. The struggle was fierce and long, but at no time did '11 lose 
ground or confidence, and was prepared to continue the contest until one side or the 
other went through the pond. But the Sophomores were too exhausted to be dragged 
through, and so the contest was stopped. 

A few weeks later we gathered on the chapel steps and had our picture taken, 
despite the frantic efforts of the "Sophs" to interfere and spoil matters. 

Just now good material for our football team is showing up, and 191 1 moves on 
in confidence of its power to wrest more victories from the contests yet to take place. 

Though just arrived, we are determined to prove loyal to old Mass'chusetts 
in all respects.

66 THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXII 



Short Course Class, 1907 



January 2. Arrived on the field, and, as in the case of previous classes,we were given 
the title of "Short Horns." Apparently the authorities considered us a prom- 
ising lot, as we were at once herded into the registrar's office and admitted 
to registry. 

January 3. First roll-call. Miss Handy — "Present." Wall — "Heerre!" 

January 7. Scriven and Beal learning that it is not necessary to get up at 4:45 A. M. 
to reach chapel at 8 A. M. 

January 9. Botany recitation by our "mascot" — "I-I do-don't believe I-I k-know 
that, b-but I— I'll have the an-answer for you here to-tomorrow. " 

January 15. Weever, a new classmate, walks right in, turns around, and walks 
right out again. 

January 16. Peak is initiated into the secrets of the mysterious closet — and others 
have an evening's amusement without paying box-office prices. 

January 24. 23 below zero — a frost — skidoo! Election of class officers. 

January 31. Joint lecture with Freshmen by Professor Cooley in the Chapel. The 
first time that the hymn books ever made an impression on the Freshman Class. 

February 1-6. Late hours, headaches, and exams. 

February 2. Raymond, basing his calculations upon "the elements of experience 
and the elements of time," and with nothing to guide him but a lactometer, 
disappears in the night. 

February 8. Recitation. Professor. — "What should you say, Mr. Shaw, of the 
relative merits of basic slag and superphosphates, and compare the costs of 

the two." Answer — First Student (sotto voce). — 

"What was his answer?" Second Student (sotto voce). — "I didn't hear him, 
neither did the Professor, but I guess it's all right, all light." 

FEBRUARY tl. After dreaming of a railroad wreck and a fearful explosion, Rich- 
ardson spins a wonderful yarn. Where had he been ? 

February 12. Hunting buys the Springfield Republican, all Boston papers, the 
Nnt- York Journal, and telephones to the Amherst Record office for informa- 
tion on said wreck and explosion. Result fruitless until April 1. 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 67 



February 14. Valentine's Day. Pratt receives a valentine from Hubbard's Fer- 
tilizer Company. 

February 16. Judging cattle at the Northampton Insane Asylum. No one is left 
behind as a permanent boarder. 

February 18. Flagg's mustache disappears. 

February 19. Cadwell's ditto. The cutworm is busy. 

February 20. Kennedy's ditto. An epidemic of mustachicitis! 

February 22. Washington's birthday. George unable to be present. 

February 25. 'Tis foolish to cry over spilled milk. Gleason and Beals learn that 
this applies to cream as well. 

February 26. Wilson gets the scarlet fever scare and leaves. He comes within a 
(red) hair of catching it. 

February 27. Photograph of > lass taken. Littlefield, Wall, and Pratt show undue 
embarrassment, form a union, and go on strike. 

March 4. Hymn 101. 

March 5. Ferry receives a telegram in the classroom. "Stung!" Ha-haha! 

March 6. The supply of toothpicks at the dining-hall gives out. Wall goes to 
Connecticut for a new invoice. 

March 7. Three times the proper amount of butter color finds its way into the churn. 

March 8. Students at the dining-hall are delighted with the rich Guernsey ( ?) 
butter. 

March ii. Stone visits Hampton for the seventy-first and last time. His keen eye 
for stock-judging aids him in being an expert judge of beauty. 

March 12. Farmers' Institute meeting. Banquet in the evening. Some members 
admitted to advanced registry. 

We certainly have a good class with which to start out in the dairy-farming business. 
In the first place, we have a Littlefield, surrounded by a Stone Wall. On a Small 
Peak we have a Hall — evidently a bachelor's hall — from the top of which flies con- 
tinuously a white Flagg, signifying fair weather. Few farms are equipped as ours is 
with a Ferry, running from Sbaw to Shaw, or with a Beeman to tend to the hives, 
both of which are certainly Handy to have on a farm. Our larder is not extensive, 
but if you will come up to see us, we can give you crackers — Kennedy 's, of course — 
and to quench your thirst, Wilson's — "That's all."

MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



Early Days of the College 




T the anniversary exercises in October, 1907, members of the Class of '71, 
forty years after that October day in 1867 when they made possible the 
opening of the Massachusetts Agricultural College by appearing upon 
the scene as the first students, came back once more to renew their vows of loyalty 
to their alma mater. Decades have come and gone since that October day when 
they gathered beneath the wide-spreading branches of a grand old chestnut tree, where 
now stands the college chapel, to commence the duties of college life. Memories 
come thronging thick and fast of those joyous bygone days; days when friendships 
were made that have continued and strengthened through the years, and the words 
of beloved Professor Stockbridge are recalled as he said, "Boys, you are having the 
best time of your lives." The scenes and events of those days pass in review before 
us like a panorama. 

Occupying the site of the present South College was the old, original dormitory, 
long since gone the way of all the earth; there were held our first examinations, and 
there were the college homes of '71. Farther to the north, where the present chemical 
laboratory now stands, was the old laboratory, a square wooden building of two stories, 
with cupola, and which contained the laboratory, chapel, gymnasium, and drill hall. 
Across the ravine stood the boarding house, with accommodations for a family and 
a dining room eighteen by fifty feet. These, with the Botanic Museum and the 
Durfee plant houses, constituted the college buildings, with the exception of the 
houses and barns standing on the farms that had been bought. The cost of all of these 
buildings was not more than that of the fine Clark Hall, that has just been dedicated. 



• l8 THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



Stretching around on every side were the fields of the several farms that had been 
purchased to make up the college farm; farms that were almost literally "run out"; 
brush and weeds were growing up in the pastures and fields, and old rail fences, with 
hedgerows and run-down orchards of ancient apple trees were scattered promis- 
cuously over the estate. 

Into this wilderness of confusion the student body of '71 was turned in squads of 
six or eight, each squad under command of one of their number, who superintended 
the work and reported any misconduct, and were immediately set to work to unravel 
the mysteries and problems of scientific agriculture, such as the digging up of apple 
tree stumps, the digging of ditches, husking corn, forking over manure, and harvesting 
of various crops. 

The work done by the students during the first term, as summarized in the annual 
report, was the digging up of fifty old apple trees, the cutting out of brush at the roots 
from eight acres of pasture land, and the harvesting of nearly all the fall crops grown 
on about sixty acres of land. Meanwhile, over on yonder hill, the classical youth 
of the older institution of learning were reveling in the imaginary fields of ancient 
Greece and Rome, and casting contemptuous glances and epithets of "potato fresh- 
men" at the farmer boys of '71, whom they condescended a year or two later to desig- 
nate as "bucolics." 

But it the students of the early days did not have the beautiful and charming 
grounds and stately buildings of the present day, there were the grand and beautiful 
views of mountain and valley. The sunsets were as golden then as now, the sky as 
blue, and the peace of heaven seemed at times to settle over the hazy landscape. 
And wherever in later years the student has wandered, in home or foreign lands, 
amid the splendor of ancient civilizations or the sunset land of the golden West, no 
place has yet been found so beautiful to him as old Amherst. 

It was not the beautiful in nature alone that our student remembers; there was 
the influence of that company of grand and noble men whose labors had made pos- 
sible the establishment of an agricultural college. 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 119 

The enthusiasm and magnetism of President Clark could not fail of giving to the 
student an inspiration to do the best that was in him; the fatherly advice and wise 
counsel of Professor Stockbridge helped over many a difficult place; while the restrain- 
ing influence of that prince of disciplinarians and instructors, Professor Goodale, 
kept in check the ardent and impetuous nature of youth, and led them along the 
pleasant paths of literature and history; and the great scientific mind and attainments 
of Professor Goessmann started the ambition of his pupils in the scientific realm. 

There were others not so closely associated with the students as the faculty, but 
whose occasional presence at the college was always a delight to us. 

Lowell has said in one of his addresses, "It was a benediction to have lived in 
the same age with Abraham Lincoln," and it was truly a benediction and inspiration 
to the early students to come into personal contact with such men as the Honorable 
Marshall P. Wilder, that venerable pioneer of agricultural and horticultural improve- 
ment, the type of a noble manhood, and Professor Agassiz, the great scientist, whose 
cordial grasp of the hand and genial words are pleasant memories with us. 

There were the two Seeleys, Julius and Clark, who gave us scholarly lectures, and 
the handsome Doctor George B. Lonng, to whose eloquent words we often listened. 
All of these memories are treasured up in the hearts and minds of the older students 
of the pioneer days of the college, and we believe the personal contact with these 
minds made us better men, better fitted for the duties of life and good citizenship. 

Lilley B. Caswell, '71.

HE history of boating in the Massachusetts Agricultural College, 
although brief, is a most interesting one; and though other inci- 
dents and occurrences in the boating experience of the college 
during the short period of its devotion to the sport are perhaps 
worth}' of notice, the one great event of conspicuous moment and 
all-absorbing interest was the remarkable achievement of the crew 
of 1 87 1 — the first college crew of M. A. C. — in its magnificent 
victory over the crews of Harvard and Brown Universities, in the 
first intercollegiate regatta of American colleges at Ingleside on 
the Connecticut River above Springfield on July 21st, 1 87 1 . 
This was the last race, and the only university or college race, won by M. A. C 
although crews were entered for the contests of the two years next following, 1872 
and 1873, in which they were not recorded as winners, but rendered good account 
of themselves nevertheless. 

The boat in which the crew of 1871 won their notable victory was badly damaged 
in the collapse of the boathouse a few years later during a severe storm, but was taken 
from the ruins and brought to the college, where it was preserved in the museum 
of old South College until the destruction of this building by fire, years later, when 
it was removed to the new drill hall, where it remained until it was recently escorted to 
the new trophy room by the five living members of the crew — Allen, Rldred, Leonard, 
Norcross, and Simpson — thirty-six years after the race, where it will rest as a continual 
reminder of the achievement of the early students of M. A. C. in the field of athletic 
sports and its history serve as an inspiration to successive classes in the future as it has 
been in the past. Somers, the other member of the crew, died a few years since. 

\ brief recital of the conditions and incidents which led to tin- inception and 
establishment of the sport of rowing in the college will be appropriate, and should be 
interesting as recording the early history of the movement leading up to the supreme 
event in the boating experience of M. A. C. In those early days college sports were 
more limited than at present. Football had not come into special favor, and other 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 125 



ind among colleges were not in vogue. Baseball was about 
the only outdoor sport practiced, and this in by no means the enthusiastic manner 
which the game has been followed in recent years. College boating, or rowing, while 
popular in the two or three larger and leading colleges of the country, was little thought 
of in the smaller institutions, and was confined mostly, if not wholly, to the classical 
colleges. The entrance of M. A. C. into this line of sport however, opened up the 
way for its very general adoption by scientific and technical institutions, and their 
enthusiastic participation in its practice during the years immediately following, and 
even up to the present day. 

In the year of 1870, the Junior year of the Class of 1871, the first to enter the col- 
lege, one James A. Barnes, a student of Amherst College, which had recently taken 
up the sport of rowing, met Edward Hardy a nongraduate member of the Class of 
1872, M. A. C, from Boston, and proposed that the sport be inaugurated at M. A. C. 
by a race between the two local colleges, with the result that a Junior race, so called, 
was planned and rowed in the fall of that year opposite Hatfield on the Connecticut 
between crews selected from old Amherst and M. A. C. This race was a three-mile turn- 
ing race, the course being one and one half miles down stream, around a stake boat, 
and back to the starting point. All college shell races were rowed in this manner up 
to that time, and shells were made shorter, shallower, and wider in those days than since, 
in order to enable the crews to make a quick turn at the turning stake. The boat used by 
M. A. C. in this race was of very favorable construction for this purpose, and our crew, 
which had a slight lead of old Amherst on arrival at the stake boat, made a very quick 
turn and increased this lead, thereby getting away on the home stretch well in advance 
of Amherst and easily winning the race in nineteen minutes and fifty-nine seconds. 
This was considered good time for a turn-stake race. 

The crew was made up as follows: Edw. Hardy, '72, Boston, bow and captain; 
Henry B. Simpson, 72, Hudson, N. Y., No. 2; George Leonard, '71, New Bedford, 
No. 3; Gideon H. Allen, 71, Marion, No. 4; George A. Duncan, Keene, N. H., 
'74, No. .5; Fred C. Eldred, '73, Sandwich, stroke. Six-oared crews was the custom 
at that time in most college contests, without coxswains. 

The boat used by our crew in this race was an old secondhand one, bought from 
a rowing club in Springfield, owned and used originally by Yale College, and built 
by Charles Elliot, of Greensport, Long Island. Her length was thirty-nine feet, width 
twenty-two inches, depth eleven inches, and weight one hundred and sixty pounds. 

Prizes were provided for the winning crew in this race, consisting of pins formed 
of small crossed oars of solid gold for each member of the crew, and a silver goblet 
as a principal prize. This goblet, or cup, was presented by the crew to President Clark 
to be kept as a memento of the victory. It has recently been turned back to the 
college by members of the former president's family with other relics of his day, and 
is now to be seen in the new trophy room together with the address accompanying its 
presentation to President Clark. 

The rowing sport was inaugurated at the college by the organization of a college 
vowing association previous to this race with Arthur D. Norcross, '71 , as president 
and William R. Peabody, '72, Boston, as commodore. 



I2 6 THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



Rowing practice, of course, was held on the Connecticut River, the nearest water, 
opposite Hatfield, the nearest point, where the boat-houses both of Amherst and of 
M. A. C. were located. The distance from the college, three miles, was naturally a 
handicap upon the crew and the sport in the college. But the location of the college 
and its condition in those early days of its poorly developed facilities in all respects, 
imposed many disadvantages to which the students, for the most part naturally sturdy 
and courageous from this and their previous home training and experiences, had 
become inured, and they did not let the fact of the remoteness of the water deter them 
from prosecuting the sport with enthusiasm, vigor, and determination, as results proved. 
It was the habit of the crew to walk over to the river, have their practice in the 
boat, many times long continued, then to run back to the college without stop by a 
roundabout way around Mount Warner, through a private way across to North 
Amherst, thence to the college by the highway. This sort of practice, it will be con- 
ceded, was no mere play, but partook very decidedly of the strenuous character, and 
was not likely to develop any mollycoddles. In fact, it was this laborious and vigorous 
method of training which gave the M. A. C. crews their great strength and power of 
endurance, their strong feeling of self-reliance and spirit of determination which swept 
them to victory in this first contest, and also in the memorable race of the following 
year at Ingleside. 

Besides this training, all of this crew, except Simpson, had had earlier practice and 
experience in handling oars — Hardy, Leonard, Allen, and Eldred having been feared 
in shore towns of old Massachusetts, and Duncan having seen service in a United 
States naval training ship. 

In the early part of the year 1871 the M.A.C. naval or rowing association re-elected 
officers. George H. Snow, of the Class of '72, was made president, and Peabody, 
'72, reelected commodore. In the spring of that year "The Rowing Association 
of American Colleges" was organized at Springfield by representatives of Bowdoin, 
Harvard, Amherst, M. A. C, and Brown ; Yale, which had hitherto been Har- 
vard's principal rival, holding out on account of differences over their race of the 
previous year. This meeting arranged for races at Ingleside on the Connecticut 
near Springfield on July twenty-first of that year. It was decided that M. A. C. 
should enter a college crew for these races. 

The victory of the old crew made its members the natural selections for this 
new one. But Hardy having left college and Duncan having decided not to become 
a candidate for membership in the crew, other men were selected to fill their places, 
and a crew was made up as follows: George Leonard, '71, bow and captain; A. D. 
Norcross, '71, No. 2; H. B. Simpson, '73, No. 3; G. H. Allen, '71, No. 4; F. M. Som- 
mers, '72, No. 5; F. C. Eldred, '73, stroke; Norcross and Sommers being the two new 
men. 

Although this race was not decided upon until the spring of the year 187 1, in which 
it occurred, it was anticipated, and the M. A. C. crew had some indoor practice dur- 
ing the winter upon improvised rowing apparatus located in the old laboratory 
building. As soon as the weather would permit, the crew engaged in practice on the 
river upon Saturday afternoons in the old boat. As the time for the race approached, 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 127 



practice was increased to twice and finally three times a week. In the meantime 
another boat was purchased from Amherst College for our use in the coming race, 
the financial condition of the association not permitting of the purchase of a new shell 
as was desired. This was also an Elliot boat, built for and used by the Amherst 
Freshmen in the races of the previous year on Lake Quinsigamond at Worcester. It 
was made of Spanish cedar, was fifty feet long, nineteen inches wide, fourteen inches 
deep, and weighed 130 pounds, being longer, narrower, and deeper than the old boat 
and better suited for the straightaway race that had been decided upon for that year. 

It was deemed both desirable and necessary, in preparing for a contest of such 
moment to M. A. C, that the crew should have some coaching from a man of expe- 
rience and skill in shell racing. Accordingly after some casting about it was decided 
to employ as coach fosh Ward, the elder of a family of four or five brothers, famous 
oarsmen, living at Cornwall on the Hudson. "Old Josh Ward" as he was known, 
though he was but forty years of age, was a long, lank individual of the Abe Lincoln 
type of physique, uncouth, but wise in boating lore, strong and skillful as an oarsman; 
just the sort ot a man needed by the M. A. C. boys, and results proved the wisdom 
of the choice. 

The boat secured for the race was rigged for center line seating of the crew, one 
directly behind the other. But Josh knew a better way and changed the outriggers 
so as to permit the crew to sit alternately on opposite sides a little out of line, thereby 
giving a longer inboard leverage with the oars, hence a more powerful and effective 
stroke. The oars used were extra long and large, also, made on Ward's special order 
by one Tim Donahue, an oar manufacturer, who said they were the largest ones he 
ever made for a racing crew. They were twelve feet and six inches in length. 
These changes increased the power of the stroke very materially. 

About ten days prior to the da)' set for the race Ward came on, and the crew took 
up quarters at Ingleside at the upper end of the course under his management, giving 
their whole time to training and practice for the event. The finances of the college 
rowing association would not permit of a longer term of coaching. Two of the '71 
members of the crew had been appointed among the speakers selected for their class 
graduation exercises, which occurred on July nineteenth, two days previous to the day 
of the race, but President Clark excused them from speaking so that their training 
should not in any way be interfered with, saying he would rather they should flunk 
on the stage than lose the race. 

o 

Of course, there was much comment, principally among other college men, upon 
the audacity of the "Hayseeds" in entering the race against the " Brahmins," and we 
were treated with more or less condescension, with a suspicious flavor of contempt, by 
the other crews; and Old Josh was the butt of many thrusts about his "duffers" and 
"Farmers": but "josh only smiled," as one account said, "but oh! how the ma- 
genta disappeared after that race!" Josh and his crew did no boasting, but were 
modest and unobtrusive in their demeanor, and went about their business in a quiet, 
self-reliant manner that meant only victory, and which must have filled the minds 
of our opponents with a foreboding of what was to happen to them. At the annual 
convention of colleges in the following year, 1872, a resolution was adopted debar- 



128 



THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



ring, after that year, professional coaches. There were but three colleges represented 
by crews in the university race of 1871 — Harvard, Brown, and M. A. C. 

As the day for the race drew near speculation naturally grew rife as to its out- 
come, and many predictions, and bets as well, were made upon tire result; but the 
Aggys, as our crew had come to be called, were never the favorites, but always left 
out of the calculation in picking the winners. In the pool-selling the night before 
the race Harvard sold for fifteen, Brown for twelve, and Amherst (Aggys) for little 
or nothing. Accounts said the university crews feared each other, but neither had 
the remotest idea that the swart boys from Amherst hills were redoubtable. 

Finally the day for the great contest arrived. In the words of one report there 
was an immense attendance and great excitement. Harvard and Brown students 
and their friends thronged in vast numbers to the course and were loudly vociferous 
in support of their favorites. The people of western Massachusetts, who were enthu- 
siastically in tavor ot the "Aggys," also turned out in vast numbers. Said the Boston 
Post, "The Amherst Agricultural students, fresh from the hills, stalked serenely amid 
the throng, confident, as they said, of victory for their men in the varsity race. Josh 
Ward was chaffed about his proteges, but wore a knowing smile and said they might 
perhaps come in second." 

The minor races took up a good deal of time and the university race was delayed 
until, as the Post said, "Hints of sunset began to tinge the horizon." But at last 
the time arrived for the supreme contest. "Harvard men with glistening eyes counted 
on two victories, as their crew had won the Freshman race. Meantime Josh Ward, 
the invincible and taciturn, was putting his brown crew to water, in front of their 
scraggy boathouse, and was smiling quietly to himself." Brown won the best 
position, Harvard the next, and M. A. C. the third and poorest. At seven o'clock 
the crews were lined up before the judges' boat at the upper end of the course, wait- 
ing the word "Go!" The Boston Journal account of the race spoke of the crews 
at this time as follows: "The Brown crew were all stripped naked to the waist, and 
wore brown handkerchiefs. Four of the Harvards, as on Wednesday, stripped, and 
two clung to their shirts. The Amhersts, brown and brawny as Greek pirates, and 
somewhat fantastically clad in white sleeveless shirts and white trousers, with 
Phrygian caps of the same material on their heads (they were white handkerchiefs with 
maroon borders, prepared and presented to the crew by young lady friends of Am- 
herst) sat motionless. Their week's training had been sadly broken into, and their 
development somewhat vitiated by the air of commencement studies, but they seemed 
confident that their rivals were predestined to defeat. Solid indeed to look at, here 
are their weights: F. C. Eldred (stroke), 149; F. M. Somers, 152; G. H. Allen, 150; 
H. B. Simpson, 149; A. D. Norcross, 138; George Leonard (bow), 141; average 
weight, 148. These are no triflers, and they have no trifles to deal with. Next them 
sit the Harvards. They look neither to the right or left. To 'get there' is their 
only aim. " 

The New York Tribune spoke of the start as follows: "At 7:04, 'Are you ready ?' 
is affirmatively answered, the crews receive the word, and while Amberst (M. A. C.) 
seems to catch the water first, both Harvard and Brown strike together, and away 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE Iz9 



they go to decide the question of superiority. The Amherst men, who seem to have 
improved their ten days of Josh Ward, and understand his old catch at the start, 
display remarkable skill and speed at forty-seven strokes per minute; and almost 
before the start is fully realized they dash ahead of both rivals. " The catch at the start 
referred to was several short and quick sharp strokes taken at the word "Go!" to force 
the boat ahead of its opponent if possible and get an advantage over them, as once in 
the lead the chance of keeping it was good, barring accident. But we reasoned that 
if all the crews followed the same practice, as we expected they would, that we would 
really gain nothing by it, perhaps, so instead of three such strokes, we took six or 
eight, and as recounted dashed ahead of our rivals at the very start. And that scheme 
had much to do with the result of the race. 

The Tribune continued, "Notwithstanding Amherst is outside, her crew, from 
whom so little is expected, are constantly forging ahead, and the real struggle is 
between the Harvards and Browns." 

The Boston Journal said, "Little Reedy" (Harvard's stroke) sits in his boat 
throwing his forty-five strokes every sixty seconds, but of no avail, for the Amherst 
men have made their first mile in three minutes, and with herculean strokes are 
whirling their light craft past the despairing university crews." (It should have said 
away from them, as we had long since passed them.) "Power is beating science. 
Men used to laugh at the Ward stroke; but it was no use; they walked away from their 
competitors all the same. The "Aggys" do not always row handsomely, but they 
have a sweeping stroke which sends the boat forward faster than ever an icicle slid 
down an avalanche. As the crews round the first bend in the course Amherst is two 
lengths ahead and is increasing her lead with every stroke she takes." 

Again the Tribune says, "In three or four minutes from the start the race is 
plainly visible from the heights of Ingleside, and when the crews are directly oppo- 
site, with Amherst still leading, and Harvard and Brown about even, excitement runs 
high, and the scene beggars description. Amherst men had collected here in large 
numbers and were well-nigh frantic, and could not restrain their outbursts of enthu- 
siasm, and they set up shouts as victorious soldiers in a forlorn hope do when the odds 
have been fearfully against them. Amherst, it is apparent, must win, and it is likely 
to be a bad beat if she continues to gain at the same rate which has been kept up to 
the beginning of the third mile. Amherst is gaining on Harvard and Harvard upon 
Brown. All that is needed to make the race perfect, as a struggle, is closer work 
between Amherst and Harvard." 

The Journal said, " It is a proud race, full of muscle and pluck and the old Yan- 
kee vim which overcomes everything in it. At last, with the 'Aggys' still leading, 
their cap peaks standing straight out in the breeze, they round the second prominent 
bend and come into view of the judges at the lower stake boat. 'Ah!' says the 
the Brown judge despairingly, 'It is the Harvards!' 'Yes,' says Rice (the 
Harvard judge). But, no! It is the gay and sturdy Amherst crew pulling far ahead 
of the Harvards and Browns, and as they sweep down the level waters like a miniature 
whirlwind there is a grand 'howl of joy,' and the Amherst boys are dancing like 
dervishes in the sand, beating each other like maniacs, and hugging their badges." 



THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



Again the Tribune, "'Is not Amherst ahead?' some one queries. 'By jingo! 
it is Amherst, as sure as you're born!' yells the short, bright-eyed, auburn-haired 
commodore of the Amherst Rowing Club, as he begins to recognize his men. The 
commodore catches the gleam of Leonard's spectacles, and jumping up and down 
in the sand, perfectly wild, he yells to Leonard, 'Sock it to her, Georgie!' But Georgie 
does not need the encouragement, for he and his crew score forty-two strokes per minute, 
and seem as fresh as Dexter (the famous trotting horse) is at the end of a half mile. " 

The Journal account continues: "Nearer, nearer, and the storm of" irrepressible 
cheers, for the parvenu Amhersts are clear far ahead, and the 'Farmers' College' 
has won the day and has beaten even the Atlantas' time. ["The Atlantas" was a 
famous crew of the Atlanta Boat Club of New York City.] And so, while the eager 
multitude all stare in one direction, from bridge, bank, and beach, while the college 
men indicate their university by the joy or sorrow depicted upon their faces, and just 
as the sun is setting, the great university race of 1871 is ended, Amherst winning 
the coveted prize, and Harvard winning the second place of honor. The time made 
by M. A. C. as announced was 17 minutes, 46^ seconds; but it was later discovered 
that an error had been made by the timekeepers in their figures of one minute, making 
the actual time 16 minutes, 46J seconds. 

The Springfield Republican in announcing this error had the following head- 
lines: "Another Plume for the Amherst Farmers. An Error of One Minute Dis- 
covered in the time of the University Race. Amherst's Time the Fastest Ever 
Made." And continued, "It was considered a severe strain on the propriety of things 
that the crew of the Amherst Agricultural College should defeat both Harvard and 
Brown in the recent race at Ingleside; but a discovery has now been made which 
renders the brilliant victory of the 'Aggys' still more extraordinary and surprising. 
They not only defeated the old university crews, but the timekeepers now show that 
they made in so doing the fastest time on record. There was, it seems, an error of just 
one minute in the time as announced on the day of the race, which, being deducted, 
gives the Amherst Agricultural crew the absolutely unprecedented time of 16 minutes, 
46V seconds. These official figures place the time of the Agricultural crew ahead 
of any other ever made, and gives them a glory which no one would have thought 
possible before the race. " 

Elegant prizes were provided by the Springfield Club for the winning crew, which 
were duly presented to the crew after the race. The Boston Journal speaks of them 
as follows: "The burghers of Worcester were wont to bestow gold and silver medals 
upon the victorious in the contests upon Lake Quinsigamond, where college races 
were previously rowed. The Springfield Club has conceived the idea of presenting 
cups to the winners this year. The value of the elegant silver Grecian boats, ornate 
with cherubs fiercely rowing diminutive craft with Liliputian oars, presented to the 
triumphing Amherst Agricultural, is $500. The two flags taken by this same for- 
tunate crew, one a United States ensign and the other of blue silk, a regatta standard, 
are extremely elegant." 

The university crews, while forced to acknowledge a bad defeat, had not sufficient 
grace to accede to the winning crew any scientific skill as oarsmen. One ot the 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 131 



Browns said," They pulled all over the boat, but they pulled like death, "and a Harvard 
man added, "It was a fearful stroke, but it made the old boat hum. It seemed as 
if they raised their boat clean out of the water every time they pulled. " The New 
1'ork Times, in telling how the race was won, said, "The rowing of the Amhersts was 
by no means scientific. It was simply a strong pull and a long pull.'" But the 
Springfield Republican had this to say about it, "It has been quite the fashion since 
the race to say that the winning crew won by mere strength, that it was a triumph of 
brute force over science. Granted that Harvard College has a monopoly of the 
'science of rowing,' perhaps this is true, for the Amherst crew did not pull exactly 
like that from Cambridge. But the Agricultural College boys clearly had science 
enough for all practical purposes, and we advise students of the noble art of rowing 
to take lessons on the Connecticut rather than on the Charles in future. The truth 
is, the Amherst crew had brains as well as muscle." 

The fact was, that most of the crew, as stated, were brought up by the water, and 
knew more of the science of practical rowing before they ever saw a racing shell, 
than either Harvard or Brown ever learned of it. Doctor Holmes, of Harvard, had once 
said, it was recounted, when Harvard was winning all the races, as she had been 
doing, that there was a great deal in blood and breeding, the insinuation being that 
while Yale could show very good limbs and sinews, and backs that one might ap- 
prove, she somehow lacked a kind of culture for want of which she must be inevitably 
beaten. But nobody thought it was agriculture she lacked. 

The New Fork Tribune said, "The rowing of the Amherst farmers had a quality 
in it that did not seem to have been put there by a few weeks of training and dieting; 
it was genuine muscle, consolidated by steady labor, muscle of the hard, enduring 
sort, that will not go away when the effect of the temporary training has ceased. It 
was a stout crew made healthy by outdoor labor, which only needed to know. how to 
use its strength to send a boat over the water at a fearful pace. We do not know 
what time this farmer crew might have made if it had been pushed." 

The scene immediately following the close of the race was one of wild excitement, 
and the "Aggy" students were frantic with joy; the members of the faculty were 
scarcely less overjoyed than the boys, especially Prexy Clark. The Amherst Record 
a few days later said, "The happiest man in town Saturday was President Clark, who 
has been from the start perfectly sanguine of the success of his boys. Amherst people 
universally rejoiced that the students of her favorite college had done something to 
let the world know there was such an institution as the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College, and that she did not propose to follow but lead." The Massachusetts 
Plouahman said, "There was an almost universal burst of gratitude over the unex- 
pected triumph of the Amherst Agricultural boys at the Ingleside regatta. The 
result showed distinctly that the boys of the institution are made ot sound and true 
stuff". And it brings the college out prominently into the popular eye, too. Presi- 
dent Clark is said to have become as excited over the event as any of them, and he 
may well feel proud of the final achievement." The Springfield Republican said, 
■"The victory of the crew in the late regatta was indeed a "big thing" for the Agri- 
cultural College, and in more respects than one." 



THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



As a result of the great victory, the college, with but four years of life as an active 
educational institution and hardly known beyond the boundaries of the Bay State, 
sprang immediately into prominence, and its name and fame were heralded throughout 
the country. The victory became the theme of the press for the time being far and 
wide, and unstinted praise and honor was bestowed upon the victorious crew and the 
college by a rejoicing public. The stimulus of the achievement gave new courage 
and energy to the officers and faculty of the college, and opened the way for the broad- 
ened scope, the higher reputation, and fuller patronage of the institution, insuring 
the successful career which followed. It marked the coming out, the debut, of the 
college into the open arena of educational life and effort, giving it a place and stand- 
ing among the colleges of the country and finally the world at large.

THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 




The Athletic Field 



jjO MODERN higher educational institution is regarded as complete without 
adequate provision for athletics. An athletic field affording provision for 
football, baseball, and track athletics is looked upon in most institutions as 
almost equally essential with lecture rooms and laboratories . So fully is the 
necessity of provision for athletics recognized that in many institutions the college itself 
furnishes the needed financial support. The desirability of more adequate provision for 
athletics at the Massachusetts Agricultural College has long been recognized. The 
athletic record of the students of the Massachusetts Agricultural College from the 
date of the winning of the boat race over Harvard and Amherst at Ingleside down to 
the present has been a proud one, but the financial support of our athletics has always 
been a matter of much difficulty. Comparatively few of our students come from 
wealthy families. Young men forced to strain every nerve and to practice the most 
rigid economy in order to meet college expenses have nevertheless contributed largely 
of their hard-earned money to help support athletics. 

It has for many years been recognized that the possession of an enclosed athletic 
field would render the support of the teams which represent the college a much lighter 
burden on the student body. It has been recognized further that provision for track 
athletics, which is impossible under existing conditions, must benefit the students in 
many ways. The number of students taking part in such sports as football and base- 
ball is relatively small. All who are physically sound can participate in the benefits 
of track athletics, which may therefore in greater degree promote the physical develop- 
ment of the students than the sports which have just been mentioned. It has not 
been deemed possible for the college to provide an athletic field. Its needs on the 
educational side have been imperative. It has been found difficult adequately to 
provide for these needs. Members of the faculty and alumni have helped support 
athletics in the college, but the principal burden has rested upon the students. The 
desirability of providing an enclosed athletic field in order that the burden upon the 
student body might be lightened has been long recognized. A statement of what 
has been done in the effort to provide such a field must be of interest both to alumni 
and students. 

The movement began in 1892, the idea at that time being that a suitable lot for 
use as a field might be found upon the college estate and that the alumni should be 
asked to contribute the funds necessary to prepare the field for use. A letter was 
accordingly sent to the trustees, asking for the use of a portion of the lot of land south 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE

of the Plainfield road. This petition to the trustees was granted, and during the 
following summer circular letters were sent to all alumni and former students asking 
for contributions tor the purpose of fitting up the field. The replies to these letters 
were fairly numerous, and the amount pledged for the purpose of fitting up the field 
was about $900. It had been recognized from the outset that the location granted by 
the trustees was in numerous respects far from ideal, and further study of the situation 
led to the conclusion that it was not on the whole desirable. The principal reasons 
for its undesirability are that the soil is of such compact and clayey character that 
even with drainage, which would not be easy, the surface would be ill suited for ath- 
letic contests, and that it lies at too great a distance from the college dormitories and 
from the village. Since the construction of the electric railroad, the last consideration 
has become yet more important, as it is in the highest degree desirable that the athletic 
field shall be in close proximity to the trolley line. As it seemed to those interested in 
the movement impossible to find on the college estate a location so well suited for a 
field as could be found outside of it, and as the response from alumni had been fairly 
liberal, it was decided to be expedient to purchase a field, as it was believed that the 
alumni would eventually contribute sufficient sums both to pay the cost and to equip 
the field for use. It was recognized that if property was to be acquired the forma- 
tion ot a corporation would be necessary. A charter was accordingly secured under 
the corporation law of the Commonwealth. A careful study of different locations 
led to the conclusion that the lot of land lying south of the veterinary laboratory 
seemed, everything considered, best suited to the use in view, and an effort to purchase 
this lot was made. This effort was unsuccessful, as the owners of the property feared 
that the location of the field in this place would depreciate the value of other real 
estate owned by them. They accordingly refused to sell the field for athletic purposes, 
and it was acquired by one of the college fraternities. 

At about this time ensued a period of great business depression, during which 
it was felt it would be a mistake to solicit funds. The project was accordingly allowed 
to rest until the business conditions were better. The movement to provide an 
athletic field was then once more vigorously pushed. It was decided that a conven- 
ient form of receipt for funds contributed would be a stock certificate; but the original 
charter did not provide for the selling of stock, and reorganization was therefore found 
to be necessary. A new charter providing for capital stock, and sale of shares in this 
stock, was accordingly secured. This charter bears the date January, 1902. By- 
laws were adopted and a board of officers elected. These steps were followed by the 
sending out of a circular letter signed by the president of the corporation. It seems 
best to publish this letter at this time, as its appeal to the alumni who have not 
responded is equally pertinent today. It was as follows: 

"M. A. C. Alumni Athletic Association, 

Amherst, Feb. 10, 1902. 
Dear Sir: 

A number of the alumni interested in athletics in our alma mater have formed 
a corporation for the purpose of purchasing, grading, inclosing and fitting up an 
athletic field. We most heartily believe that the promotion of the athletic interests 



136 THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



and development of the students will help the college in many ways. It has been hard 
in the past for the students here to support athletic teams. They have managed to 
do so for the past few seasons more worthily than has been the rule, as the alumni 
have helped. They will without doubt be able to do so without making yearly appeals 
to alumni when once they have a suitable field. Is it not an appropriate time for 
alumni to signalize their loyalty and devotion by a gift which shall stand as a monu- 
ment and perpetual reminder of their loving interest in the college ? No gift, it is 
believed, will be so appreciated by the student body as a well-equipped field; and 
therefore none will perhaps help the college more. We can make this gift if every 
man will contribute in accordance with his means. It will be called "Alumni Field." 
Will you not help? The corporation offers stock for sale at ten dollars per share. 
This stock is nonassessable. Purchase of shares is, of course, practically a gift, as 
there will be no income. The stock certificate, however, is a convenient form of 
receipt. Certificates, moreover, furnish a basis for division of proceeds in case the 
property acquired or any part of it should ever be sold. Kindlv let me know at your 
early convenience how many shares you will take. 

Yours in Old M. A. C." 

A considerable number of favorable responses were received, but the proportion 
of alumni replying comprised but a small percentage of the total number. To those 
not responding a second letter was sent, and this letter also is published in the hope 
that it may influence a few among the hundreds of alumni who have not been heard 
from. 

"M. A. C. Alumni Athletic Association, 

May 24, 1902. 

Dear Mr. : 

•You probably received the letter which I sent you some three months ago solicit- 
ing subscriptions to the stock of the recently incorporated Athletic Association. I 
know how numerous the demands upon all must be; and I know, too, how easy it 
is, in this busy world, to put aside with the fullest intention of replying later any 
appeal of this kind, and how likely such intention is to be forgotten. I cannot 
believe that you are indifferent to the athletic interests of your alma mater. Perhaps 
you have felt that the athletic field movement cannot succeed. If so, you are mistaken. 
The number of earnest men who are interested in the movement and determined to 
make it a success justifies this statement. The movement will not fail. It is only 
a question of time. Of how much time, do you ask? That depends upon you. If 
you will answer this appeal in proportion to your means in your very next mail, success 
will be immediate. We are negotiating for a lot most admirably adapted to our 
needs. We have now some fifteen hundred dollars paid in and promised, — and from 
eighty-nine men. Eigbty-nine only out of more than nine hundred heard from. Will 
you not do your share to better this record ? Please write me at once how many ten- 
dollar shares you will take and when you expect to be able to pay; or, if more con- 
venient, you may send the money to the Treasurer, Charles L. Flint, 19 Doane Street, 
Boston, and he will send you a stock certificate. 

Yours for M. A. C. Athletics." 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 137 



The total amount pledged for the athletic field movement as a result of this and 
the earlier appeals was about $2,000, of which total about three fifths was paid in. 
The Board of Directors felt that they were justified in proceeding to purchase a lot, and, 
altera careful studv of the situation, came to the decision that the lot south of the Vet- 
erinary Laboratory, which had been previously fixed upon as the best,was the one, every- 
thing considered, offering the most advantages. Negotiations were accordingly 
entered into with the directors of the fraternity corporation owning the lot to see 
whether it could be purchased. The fraternity, while not caring to sell, generously 
decided on yielding to the superior claims of the institution as a whole, and a price which 
seemed mutually satisfactory was agreed upon. It was found, however, that the 
original owners of the land had caused a clause to be inserted in the deed to the effect 
that it should never be used for an athletic field. The question as to whether this 
clause might not in some way be set aside was most carefully investigated. The 
decision was finally reached that it was not expedient to do this, and the plan to pur- 
chase this lot was therefore reluctantly given up. In view both of the difficulty of 
securing a suitable lot and because of its cost a considerable number of those inter- 
ested in the movement felt that further effort should be made to secure a suitable lot 
on the college estate. The ground was carefully gone over by the Board of Directors 
of the Corporation. Their decision was that the only lot which seemed in any rea- 
sonable degree suitable was the one lying northeast of the Administration Building of 
the Experiment Station. This lot was carefully surveyed as a problem by a student 
in landscape gardening, and the cost of fitting it for a field was estimated from his 
data. The figure was found to be so high as to make it very probable that the selec- 
tion of that location, on account of the amount of grading required, would involve a 
cost exceeding that of a purchased field. It was found, moreover, that the members 
of the committee of the Board of Trustees on Grounds and Buildings, to which com- 
mittee the full Board of Trustees had referred the question, were opposed to granting 
the use of this field. It was therefore recognized that a satisfactory solution of the 
problem of an athletic field on the college estate appeared to be impossible. 

After some further study of the problem, the Board of Directors of the Corpora- 
tion decided on making an effort to purchase a lot. It has thus far been impossible 
to secure satisfactory terms.

MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 139 



M. A. C. in 1907 




fHE Massachusetts Agricultural College is forty years old. The story of its 
infancy was rehearsed at the exercises in commemoration of its fortieth 
anniversary, October 2d, 1907, and the history of its childhood and youth 
is well known to all those who had a part in maintaining and guiding it 
during those important years of development and growth. Naming the periods of 
the life of the college as we name the periods in the life of a man, we may say that 
the college has come to man's estate, to a point in its history when we may reason- 
ably ask it, "What are you going to do ?" "What are your plans ?" "Toward what 
object are you to direct your efforts ?" 

We sometimes use the term "college, " without a definite idea of what we mean. 
When the enthusiastic upperclass man is urging the Freshmen to show, by their works* 
their loyalty to the college, what is meant ? Loyalty to the class, loyalty to the "team," 
loyalty to a friend, — these expressions convey an idea quite definite and well under- 
stood; but loyalty to the college, — what is that? When the profound and eloquent 
Webster is moved to tears as he exclaims. " It is a small college, and yet there are those 
who love it," what was it that stirred his emotions so deeply? Not classmates, not 
faculty, not trustees, not the campus, not the grand old mountains that surrounded 
his college home, not one of these singly, perhaps not all combined expressed the 
full idea of the college of his affection, the alma mater of his manhood's love. 

There are analogies between the college of today and a man. There are the 
buildings, the laboratories, the equipment of the college, all analogous to the human 
body. Through these the college expresses itself; without these it cannot express 
itself. Then there are the trustees, who choose and decide, — the will of the college, 
communicating their decisions to the faculty, its nervous system. It goes without 
saying that money, whether furnished by individual, state, or government, is the food 
without which the body cannot live and which gives it vigor and power. This must 
be digested and conveyed to this organ and to that so that every department may do 
its appointed work and all may combine to p:oduce health and strength. 



H° THE 1)09 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



Standing thus in the vigor of its manhood, our forty-years-old friend tells us his 
plans for the future in the words of the author of the land-grant act. "The land- 
grant colleges," says Mr. Morrill, "were founded on the idea that a higher and 
broader education should be placed in every State within the reach of those whose 
destiny assigns them to choose industrial vocations, where the wealth of nations is 
produced, where advanced civilization unfolds its comforts and where a much larger 
number of the people need wider educational advantages and impatiently await their 
possession. " 

"A higher and broader education," — to this the life of the college is given. In 
doing this work the college becomes an explorer, prying into Nature's secrets and 
searching for new laws whose application to the daily life of man may rob disease of 
its power and give renewed courage and hope to many a son of toil. It becomes an 
artist, having in its hand, not a lifeless block of marble, but the active, growing minds 
of the thousands of young men and women who shall be trained and taught for a 
life of active service for their fellow-men. It may become a leader in all those enter- 
prises that promote the improvement of mankind and quicken the step in the onward 
march of civilization. Whatever place it may take in the ever broadening field of 
education, it will not be limited to the three-score years and ten or to the four-score 
years of human life, but, if true to its high calling, it will find its strength constantly 
renewed and will continue, an ornament to its age, a blessing to the world. 

George F. Mills. 




TROPHY ROOM 



14* THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 




The Trophy Room 



HE Students' Reading Room in old North College is a thing of the past. 
Its dingy ceilings, unsightly racks, and torn papers have, with the "rough- 
housing," taken their departure. The Students' Trophy Room is a thing 
ot the present. The transformation is complete. New windows with large 
panes of glass have replaced the old; the walls have been tinted in pleasing shades 
of maroon and green; and artistic electric lamps now flood the room with light. Com- 
fortable mission furniture gives rest to the weary body, and notes from the fine new 
piano rest the weary mind. Here, surrounded on all sides by evidences of important 
college victories, the student can for a time forget the strenuous life and enjoy splendid 
opportunities for social intercourse. 

A brief historical survey of the trophy room movement may be of interest. When 
President Kenyon L. Butterfield took up the administrative duties, he saw that one 
of the needs of the institution was a place where there could be a concentration of the 
athletic interests; a spot which might tell the new men just what the college had 
achieved along athletic lines, thus serving to inspire future classes to stand for those 
things which so closely link together class, collegiate, and intercollegiate interests,, 
namely, victories through clean, straightforward athletics. 

The Students' Reading Room Association was not a success; student taxes were 
difficult to collect; subscriptions to periodicals were not paid, and there was a general 
lack of interest in the whole scheme on the part of the student body. It was President 
Butterfield who conceived the idea of abandoning this students' reading room, merg- 
ing it with the college reading room in the chapel; and then transforming the place 
into the trophy room. In addition to its serving as a place to house substantial 
evidences of athletic victories, President Butterfield saw also the need of the men's 
having some social center and until such a time as other rooms may become 
available this room is to serve a twofold purpose. 

The problem of available funds for carrying out the scheme was an important 
one. It was decided that the general legislature be asked for an increased main- 
tenance fund, part of which should be used for fitting up this room. The request 
was granted, and on October 4th, 1907, the Trophy Room was dedicated in a manner 
befitting its importance. The old racing shell, of which the college is so proud, was 
given a permanent resting place in a most conspicuous position; several class and 
college banners telling of athletic victories were placed upon the walls, and the old 
chapel bell, which has in times past rung out so man)' victories and which on "Freshman 



M A S S.U'H I' S ETTS A G R ICVL T URAL COLLEGE 



H3 



nights" has occasioned so many class demonstrations, was given a lower but no 
less important position. Since the dedication several footballs, the result of games 
won during the last season, have been accorded positions in this "temple of fame. " 

The significance ot the trophy room is evident. Its function is not to serve 
simply as a storeroom tor banners, footballs, baseball bats, and the like, thus making 
it a museum to be visited by the students semioccasionally, but it has a broader and 
more far-reaching mission. It must be a vital spot in college life and college interests. 
The men here come into daily contact with inspiring influences, and, with this room 
serving as a social center, all students, rich or poor, "frat" or "non-fiat," may meet 
with common interests — good scholarship, good fellowship, good athletics. 

Good scholarship and college interests go hand in hand. The day of the book- 
worm is past, and the student of today applies himself, not alone to his books, but 
to manv other significant things pertaining to his daily life and environments. The 
student must appreciate, therefore, the value of wider college interests, the Y. M. C. A., 
the social lite, the athletic life. The religious life says, "Quit ye like men, be strong." 
The social life makes its demands. "No man liveth to himself alone," and the stu- 
dent who shuns society becomes the man of the narrow mind. Student life neces- 
sarily throws together "many men of many minds," and in this Trophy Room there 
should be represented many and varied interests which should serve to bind together 
all students in the common bond of good-fellowship. 

The trophy room should stand for straightforward and honorable conduct. 
Victory attained through dishonor and deceit is no victory, and the team which plays 
the cleanest game is the winning team, be its official score ever so small. M. A. C. 
has an enviable record in this respect, and the trophy room should be an exponent 
of athletic principles in the college life. 

It is also hoped this room, with its mementoes of former victories, ma)' serve 
to awaken new activities between classes, so that an Athletic Field Day may be an 
event of the near future. Among the large number of students now at M. A. C. there 
are certainly enough to compete in those various events which add so much vim to> 
college life. 

To the legislature of this commonwealth, to the trustees of this institution, to' 
the president of the college, and to the alumni, all of whose cooperation has made 
this movement possible, the student body owes a debt of appreciation. That it is 
appreciated is plainly evident by the use now made of the trophy room.

The 1907 football season 
opened at M.A.C. September 
sixteenth, when about eight 
men reported for work.There 
soon came several additions 
to this first number, so that 
shortly after college opened 
a fair squad was at my dis-' 
posal. The '06 team re- 
turned almost to a man, and 
from the very beginning the 
outlook has been bright for a 
good team. 




Mgr. Gillett 



So far, the team has played hard, conscientious football, and the men of Mass'chu- 
setts have every reason to be proud of the showing of the team. Four games have been 
played; a game having been lost to Williams, 5-4; one to Brown, 5-0; and one to Dart- 
mouth, 6-0. To show how these men have improved in their playing, I will state the 
respective scores for the season of 1906: Williams, 5-0; Brown, 17-0; Dartmouth, 26-0. 
The team also won from Rhode Island State College, 1 1-O. 

The heaviest part of our schedule is over, and we hope to win a good share, 
if not all, of the remaining games. Win or lose, the college must know that the men 
will play their best, and it must stand behind them in defeat as well as victory. 

Mass'chusetts has taken a position in the athletic world much higher than her 
numbers would warrant. Let every son of M. A. C. come out and fight hard for 
her teams, not only that such position may be maintained, but in order that she may 
continue to rise higher and higher in the estimation of the athletic world.

BROWN FIGHTS HARD | 
FOR 5 M VICTORY 

Hill Men Score Only 1 Touchdown 
Against Amherst ''Aggies." 



SURPRISE IN SECOND HALF 



Visiting Eleven Gets Within Striking 
Distance of Brown's Goal Three 
Times and Outplays locals in That 
Period.-^BninoniuD.s Show Improve- 
ment Over First Game. — Small Crowd. 

The Amherst "Aggies" threw a big 
scare into the camp of the Brv.nonians 
yesterday afternoon at Andrews Field 
and it was only by the stiffest kind of de- 
fensive work in the second half that the 
hill team was able to pull out the victory 
by the slight margin of one touchdown, 
the score being 5 to 0. 

During' the first few minutes | Brown 
played tag with her opponents, getting 
the ball on her own 40-yard line, and by 
a brilliant series of end runs and line 
bucks carrying It down the field aTid over 
the line for the touchdown. The "Aggies" 
■were literally played off their feet during 
the whirlwind rush of the hill men, and 
the small crowd of spectators settled back 
to take in the feast of touchdowns whicn. 
seemed to be in order. 

The visitors were made of sterner stuit 
than they showed in the first few minutes 
of play, however, and rallied to the de- 
fence with a gamehess that was in 
marked contrast to their work at the 
start. After the ball had see-sawed back 
and forth for a short period, Cobb's su- 
perb punting making a show of the feeble 
kicks of the locals. Brown again made a 
determined bid for a score and pushed 
the ball Into the shadow of the Amherst s 
goal posts. .It was at that stage that the 
visiting eleven showed its mettle and 
successfully resisted the vigorous assault 
on the line. Quarterback Dennie showing 
poor judgment in rot sending his plays 
e round the end, where most of the gams 
had been made. The Aggies held like a 
stone wall, and Brown lost the ball. Again 
In the second half the Brunonians got 
■Within striking distance of their oppo- 
nents' goal, only to lose the ball on downs 
.by line-bucking tactics. The "Aggies- 
outplayed Brown in the second hair, 
threatening to score three times. 

Brown's game, despite the small score, 
was a vast improvement over the W"

BAITER THE LIFE OUT OF

Fierce Mass Plays Win Out 
10 to 5. 



Holy Cross was given a fierce pummel- 
,ng yesterday afternoon on Fitton field by 
Amherst Aggies", and at the end of a line- 
bucking game, at which the heavier 
weight of the former team told much; 
Holy Cross was beaten, 10 to 5. 

An awful drubbing at the hands of the 
agricultural college team was alone re- 
sponsible for the defeat. The team did 
not wake up until it was too late to win 
the game. The Amherst aggregation soon 
found Holy Cross was weak in the line 
and played the game with line plunging 
and tandems. Holy Cross was slow 
while Amherst was after the ball all the 
time and played together. Holy Cross' 
playing was more on the individual style 
arid did not count for much against the 
terrific onslaught.

IME in its seemingly ever-quickening pace has brought to the Class of Nine- 
teen Hundred and Nine a new task, although not new in the history of 
the college — the task of compiling the thirty-ninth volume of the Index. 

Although the general character of the book must necessarily be more or less 
the same from year to year, yet it has been the purpose of the present board of 
editors to deviate from the general trend as evinced by their predecessors, and launch 
out on new, untraveled territory. In the realization of this fact the board has sought 
to make this annual as original and interesting as possible. Especial effort has 
been made to interest the alumni, by way of historical articles, bearing on the early 
days of the college, and in endeavoring to make the alumni list complete and accurate. 

In a college annual of this nature, there is, perhaps, no portion which affords 
more real enjoyment to the reader than that portion devoted to grinds. In view 
of this fact, the editors have drawn freely from their vaults of humor, and distri- 
buted "hits" liberally to saint and sinner alike. If, perchance, some feel they have 
received a bit more than their "just dues," we would ask them to "cheer up," and 
laugh with the rest of us, remembering the jesting spirit with which they were 
introduced. For particulars relative to the section, including the chronicles of "Ought- 
Nine," the editor would refer the reader to the words of the clown on the preceding 
page of that section, who alone is guilty for the contents therein. 

The Editor wishes to avail himself of this opportunity of expressing his sincere 
thanks to all those who, by suggestions or contributions, have assisted in making 
this book what it is. 

As to the merits or demerits of the book, it behooves us to say little; we would 
rather leave that part to the sounder judgment of the reader. 

So, with these brief thoughts as an introduction, the Board of Editors, repre- 
senting the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Nine, wish to present this volume of the 
Index, hoping it may prove itself worthy of a place beside its predecessors, and a 
truly representative organ of dear old Massachusetts. 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 169 




President Butterfield's Inauguration 

1HE first ceremony in the history of this institution to publicly inaugurate a 
president of the Massachusetts Agricultural College took place on the after- 
noon of Wednesday October 17th, 1906. Had this practice been followed 
from the start, eight such inaugurations would have been celebrated during 
the forty-two years previous to President Butterfield's arrival. The first would have 
been that of President Henrv F. French, in 1864; the last, that of President Henry H. 
Goodell, in 1886. This custom, however, had not taken root here during this period, 
and it remained for 1906 to mark the first ceremony of this nature. It was some- 
thing new, and anything new has a special significance, because it is new. What, 
then, did it signify to us in this instance ? It signified that we were progressing, 
and that we were ready to announce the signs of progress to the world. 

A word in public may not mean more than a word in private, but it carries 
farther. The public profession of loyalty on the part of the trustees, faculty, and 
students to this noble institution and its new head, and, in return, his public accept- 
ance of his duties, declaration of his hopes, and pledge of devotion to the interests 
of M. A. C. may not have meant more than if privately spoken, but they carried 
farther. They reached more people. The public utterances on that day showed 
that we had been accomplishing things, were still accomplishing things, and pro- 
posed accomplishing much more. In plain words, they advertised us. That is 
what we want; what we must have. We may see and know the value of our insti- 
tution; we want others to see and know it as well. We may feel that our college is 
accomplishing things of importance; we want others to know that it is. To do 
this effectively, we must make use of public opportunities to show where we stand 
and what we are doin<r. 

o 

But the occasion, though more than a year past now, made strong and personal 
impressions which we should seek not to forget. 

Can the Board of Trustees forget the following words of its representative ? 
"Mr. President, in behalf of these Trustees, I give you our most cordial and hearty 
welcome, assuring you of our support and assistance when needed. You will find 



THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



the board of trustees loyal to the college and its president — several of them the 
alumni of the college and all of them its loval friends." 

Can President Butterfield forget the expression of his hopes and the pledge 
of service which he uttered at that time? "I wish to see the college make full use 
of every opportunity as it arises. I shall be ambitious for the college to keep its 
place among the great agricultural colleges of the world. I shall be jealous of its 
honor and fame. I need the loyalty of the alumni, the fidelity of the student body, 
the hearty cooperation ot the faculty, the support of the trustees, the consideration 
of every citizen of Amherst, the earnest help of the farmers, and the intelligent 
interest of the general public. In return, all I can now give is a most earnest pledge 
of devotion to the college and its highest interests, as God gives me the vision to see 
those interests, and with His help to attempt to unlock the future's portal with a 
key designed in the light of the great need which this college seems destined to 
fulfill." 

Can we, as students of M. A. C, forget our cheers on that occasion — our 
cheers for the college, our cheers for the new President ? 

The memory of these expressions should be another bond uniting all concerned 
in the welafre of our institution in a cooperative devotion to its best interests. The 
deep feelings aroused by such outbursts of sentiment and the voicing of true and 
lofty motives are, perhaps, too easily forgotten. But there can be no doubt that 
on Inauguration Da)' we, as students, were filled with enthusiasm and love for our 
college, fired with the purpose to do our best to promote college welfare, stirred 
with the desire to cooperate heartily with our new head in response to the same 
spirit which we looked for in him. Let us not forget these things — any of us. The 
opportunity to fulfill them still lies before us. There is work for each one of us in the 
development and uplifting of those spheres of college life in which we move. It 
we are ready to attract public attention to the work and progress of our college, 
we must be the more careful to close up all avenues of possible criticism.

The Signs of the Times 

IHE fortieth anniversary of the opening of the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College was celebrated October 2d, 3d, 4th, and 5th, 1907. It took the form 
of a conference on rural progress under the auspices of the college, and 
with the cooperation ot the following organizations: the State Board of 
Agriculture, the State Grange, the Massachusetts Civic League, the State Executive 
Committee of the Y. M. C. A., the Connecticut Valley Congregational Club, and the 
Western Massachusetts Library Association. 

On the morning of the opening day an anniversary, program was carried out. 
Speakers of national reputation addressed the assembled student body and friends 
of the college. The Honorable M. F. Dickinson, of Boston, developed "The Beginnings 
of College History." Mr. William H. Bowker, a member of the pioneer class, 
was in an especially reminiscent mood in handling his subject, "'The Old Guard,' 
the Famous 'Faculty of Four,' and Our Debt to Amherst College." Professor 
William P. Brooks followed with an interesting sketch of the Massachusetts 
Experiment Station, its past, present, and future, paying just tribute to the work of 
Doctor Goessmann, now retired from active service. In the afternoon " Some Features 
of New England Dairying" was presented by Professor C. E. Beach, of the Uni- 
versity of Vermont. "The Grange and Rural Progress" was the subject taken 
bv the Honorable N. }. Bachelder, former Governor of New Hampshire, and Master 
of the National Grange. The feature of the afternoon was the dedication of Clark 
Hall, the new Botanical Laboratory. Addresses were given by David P. Penhallow, 
D. S., Professor of Botany, McGill University, Montreal, Canada, and John M. 
Tyler, Ph. D., Professor of Biology, Amherst College. The late President William 
S. Clark received laudable commendation from both speakers. An evening session 
was held in the Town Hall. "The Broad Outlook of the Agricultural Experiment 
Stations" and "The Value of Art and Skill in Industry" were the subjects pre- 
sented. We need not go further into details. Programs were freely dispensed, 
and the newspapers reviewed the four days' work. Yet we may note the diversity of 
the subjects of the addresses, demonstrating how well President Butterfield carried 
out his plans to cover the field. The following interests were considered: Forestry, 
the marketing of fruit products, college Y. M. C. A. work, civic improvement, the 
Grange and its work in village improvement, the country boy in service, care of 
shade trees, poultry, libraries as a means to rural betterment, the new rural life, 
the country church, country school improvement, agriculture in the country school, 
agricultural high schools, and industrial education. 



172 THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



Nevertheless, let us consider the dedication of the trophy room in brief. On 
the afternoon of October fourth, the athletic trophy room in North College was dedi- 
cated by the students and alumni. The room is the result of a complete trans- 
formation of the old reading room, made possible by a tax levied upon the student 
body. The shell in which the regatta at Ingleside was won was taken from the drill- 
hall, where it had lain for years, and escorted by the students to North College, 
where it was placed in permanent quarters. The boat was presented to the college 
by Gideon H. Allen, of New Bedford, the first graduate of the college, and a mem- 
ber of the winning crew. The living members of the crew are George Leonard, '71; 
Gideon H. Allen, '71; Arthur D. Norcross, '71; Henry B. Simpson, '73; and Fred- 
erick C. Eldred, '73. The sixth member, Frederick Somers, died some years since 
in England. Professor E. A. White, '95, then presented other athletic trophies, 
as Mr. Kirkland, '94, was not present. Kenneth E. Gillett, '08, accepted them on behalf 
ot the students, College Senate, and athletic organizations. President Kenvon L. 
Butterfield spoke briefly concerning the significance of the trophy room. The 
exercises closed with the singing of "Sons of Old Mass'chusetts. " 

We will quote a significant passage from President Butterfield's speech. He closed 
with these inspiring words: "Perhaps more important than all, the trophy room, 
to my mind, is significant, because it is only the beginning of still greater things. 
For the present it may serve the purpose of a social gathering place, but as soon 
as possible, we must have an "M. A. C. Union," a general social center, a hearth- 
stone of the college, a gathering place for all those who love M. A. O, a place where 
differences of age, differences of class, differences of fraternity, shall be buried in 
one splendid spirit of devotion to the college." 

The conference is now a matter of history; but, as such, it cannot be said to belong 
to the past alone. The events which went to make up the conference are indeed 
historical, but the influences arising; from and extending out of the conference are 
to be chronicled first by the prophet. The conference on rural progress has a 
greater significance than mere perusal of newspaper reports might suggest. It 
marked the fortieth birthday of a college that was founded in a most critical period 
of the nation's history. The announcement of the conference stated that "the 
historical and anniversary aspects will not be disregarded, but the outlook is toward 
the future." Just so was the conference conducted. And the very fact that the 
celebration was not a holiday or recess, heralded by the booming of cannon, illumi- 
nated with the display of fireworks, and devoted to sports, emphasizes most strongly 
the commendable attitude of the college toward the commonwealth. There was 

o 

work, accomplished with an earnestness and a purpose that made itself felt. Men 
of brain and action gave of the richness of their experiences for the benefit of others. 
They realized the importance of the success of the conference, and, therefore, in hearty 
cooperation with the college, expressed at all times their appreciation of the college. 
M. A. C. is plainly making rapid strides forward. She is the same alma mater 
with a new and bigger purpose. Under the present administration we are working 
out broader ideals and ideas of extension. We are beginning to take cogni- 
zance of the fact that M. A. C. is a college of the people, by the people, and for the 
people, and the closer knit the ties of mutual action are, the nearer do we approach 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE i 73 



the ideals of a true technical education. The man who seeks by an education to 

rise above his fellow-beings tor selfish interests, in either the accumulation of wealth, 

or the acquirement of position, is not worthy of the education. On the other hand, 

he who, with a nobler ambition, trains his talents in a school in order that he may 

make the most of himself in doing good in the community in which he lives, whether 

it be the narrow confines ot the village, or the broad scope of the nation, treads firm 

ground along paths that lead to that eternal self-satisfaction that merits the praise, 

"Well done, thou srood and faithful servant." Alienate the college from the Coin- 
er o 

munity, and you get more often the former type of gentleman. Bring the college 
down to the people, and the people up to the college, and you not only educate the 
student to the rural conditions to be met in real life, but you make the farmers, the 
gardeners, and the followers of kindred employments know that the college has a live 
interest in their welfare and advancement. 

The conference achieved manifold results. First and foremost, by making 
the college its headquarters, it directed the attention of the citizens of the State to 
the college as the origin of radiating influences in the rural world. Just what direct, 
material results this will bring to M. A. C. is hard to determine. Popularly speaking, 
it was a big advertisement. It has surely brought the college before the people of 
the State as an indispensable institution. The summer school dealt strictly with 
educational problems. One certain result will be an increase of entering students 
next fall. The conference on rural progress dealt with economic problems. We 
shall see M. A. C. in a not far distant future fulfilling a grander mission. What 
this mission is may be gleaned from the words of William H. Bowker, a member 
of the Class of '71, and for the past twenty years a member of the Board of Trustees, 
in his address on Anniversary Day. He spoke in part as follows: "As to the future, 
we anticipate that much of the academic work which we now have to do will be elimi- 
nated, and that at no distant day we shall deal chiefly with the larger and higher 
educational problems; that men will do their academic work before reaching us, 
and will come here for advanced training in the natural and applied sciences. Who 
knows but that one day we shall be a college for advanced or post graduate work 
in all departments of education, and that Amherst College on yonder hill will be a 
preparatory school for us?" 

This is a brilliant future. Yet "breathes there the man with soul so dead," 
who is not thrilled by such optimistic sentiments regarding the future career of 
"Old Mass'chusetts"?

THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 




College Spirit at M. A. C. 

HEN we speak of college spirit, it is generally understood to mean an abstract 
quality that possesses every undergraduate and alumnus to a greater or 
less extent with the idea that his alma mater is the best place to fit oneself 
for the battle of life. Do we possess college spirit here ? We think we can 
truthfully say, yes, although our spirit is not ideal, by any means. 

Some believe that college spirit consists only in working for the athletic teams, 
or keeping closely in touch with their successes or failures. Such a student is narrow- 
minded. It is a far broader subject. 

Some may have the physique to engage in athletics. It is too bad that every student 
cannot participate in some sport. Besides the fine exercise gained, an athlete is brought 
into close connection with human nature and character, and nowhere can one find a 
place better suited to study character than on a football field. There a man shows 
up his character unconsciously. If he is sluggish mentally, uncharitable, lacking 
in grit, these characteristics will surely appear. 

But there are many ways of exhibiting college spirit. The various college organ- 
izations, such as the Y. M. C. A., the fraternities, or the musical clubs, are excellent 
means of promoting college spirit. 

The Y. M. C. A., for instance. A man can nowhere find a worthier object 
with which to ally himself. It is not, or should not be, merely a Bible class (not that 
we should be opposed to such), but consists of a body of young men who, having 
ideals, are attempting to lead pure lives. 

Fraternity lite should be closely allied to college spirit, but a college fraternity 
is not, as a rule, cosmopolitan. It includes men of a certain type, and, being but a single 
unit in college, should not rank as high as some other college organizations. 

A real live college student is not, as a rule, a bookworm, but we believe that 
when such a student graduates and goes out into the world he carries more with 
him than the student who totters forth with his sheepskin, his mind limited to books 
and narrowed by little knowledge of nature. Such are to be pitied. They have 
lost one half of their college course. 



M A S S A C H I' S E T T S AGRICl'LTl'RAL COLLEGE

A man to be popular has to possess character; he must be alert, willing to lead, 
charitable, and of a sunny disposition. 

There are too manv who are perfectly willing to look on and say, "Good work! 
keep it up," but who lack the faculty of going ahead on their own account. Such 
men will always be willing to plod along through life, satisfied with what comes to 
them, but lacking ambition to rise. 

A student must be charitable to his fellow-students. He may not agree with 
the habits of another. Pity him and try to bring him up to your standard of morals. 
He may be weak; if so, he will not be helped by any uncharitable act. 

Above all, appear happy. A happy man can do more good with his influence 
than two men who, although they may be far more brilliant mentally, lack that 
happy faculty ot looking pleasant. It is the happy man who is worth the while today. 
Such exists at M. A. C. to a greater or less extent, and nowhere can one find a 
more typical American student body than here. 




178 THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 




Sophomore-Senior Prom. 

ARLY last spring the Sophomore Class proposed a new custom, by which 
they would give to the Seniors a formal reception and dance, to take 
the place of the regular Senior promenade, which has been held every 
commencement. 
We decided that by the Sophomore Class taking it upon itself to give the prom- 
enade we could help the Seniors out of a great difficulty. In other years we have 
known the rush at commencement and the entertaining of friends and relatives, 
to whom each ought to give his attention. In tact, it is nearly impossible for any 
outgoing class to carry out the promenade successfully with the other urgent duties that 
it is obliged to attend to just at that time. 

Not only was it to be a benefit to the Senior Class, but it showed the great respect 
in which we held them. We realized that a class was leaving college that had helped 
us out of many difficulties and trained us in the ways of true college life. Our class 
felt that, with the coming of another autumn, many old faces would be missing, 
but that we could feel satisfied that '09 had done all in her power to help '07 in a 
time of need. Our plan was readily taken up by the Senate, which voted to estab- 
lish the Sophomore-Senior promenade as a regular commencement event, given 
each year by the Sophomore Class in honor of the Seniors. 

The class entered into the spirit of the affair and, with the aid of a decorator, 
the drill hall was artistically trimmed. The most important decoration was a set 
piece which gave forth the simple letter and figures " '09, M., '07." 

In fact, the whole affair was a decided success, being one of the largest in the 
history of the institution. Our college should certainly be proud of its promenades, 
and with the interest of each class in its turn, our Sophomore-Senior promenade 
will be kept one of the leading events from a social standpoint at "Massachusetts.''

HO' I should travel this whole world o'er, 

And see full many a place, 
Blessed with the fulness of nature's store. 

And crowned with beauty and grace, 
My heart and thought would oft go back 

To the college so dear to me. 
To the fairest college in the land — 

Mass'chusetts, all hail to thee! 

In old Amherst's bosom is thy royal siege, 

And seated on that fair throne 
Thou wilt cause us to be thine eternal lietre 

When we go out in the world alone. 
And when in the future we return 

To see thy face once more, 
We'll find thee always the gentle mother • 

That we have known before. 



And if the world shall look at our men 

To see what they have done. 
May it find invariably each of them 

A worth)' and honorable son 
Whose ideals are high and ennobling and good, 

Who adorns his position in life 
With the truth and manliness and zeal 

That count in this world of strife!

'09 On the War Path 




N the pleasant land of Amherst, 

!In the shade of Old Mass'chusetts, 
That great training ground for warriors. 
Many tribes are drawn together 
To sojourn and dwell as neighbors; 
To develop mighty war chiefs 
Who may go forth to life's battle, 
And, achieving, gain high honors 
By their active, manly service 
In the interest of their fellows. 
Here each year are four tribes gathered; 
Here they intermingle freely 
And, sojourning thus together, 
Learn to know and love each other. 

When, from distant scenes of warfare. 
Comes the call for fearless leaders, 
Then respond the oldest tribesmen, 
From the company of their fellows 
Separate with ceremony, 
And, with farewells to each other. 
Many different trails they follow 
To the scenes of strife and combat 
Where their prowess may be needed. 

So the tribes form in procession. 
As the one goes forth to service, 
Comes a new tribe here for training, 
And here learning and maturing, 
In its turn goes forth to service. 
Thus the tribes are always changing. 
Thus they come and go forever. 




Peaceful were the tribe of Freshmen 
Gathered under 'oo.'s standard 
To pursue the chase for knowledge 
In their chosen alma mater. 
Verdant came they to Massachusetts, 
Verdant as the morning freshness; 
Simple were their ways and harmless; 
Love and hope dwelt in their bosoms. 

Fain would they have lived as brothers 
With their neighb'ring tribe, the Soph'mores, 
Who bore 'oS in their war cry, 
Who with gray and red were painted; 
Fain would join with common purpose 
To uphold Massachusetts 1 honor 
And allow no causeless warfare 
To dethrone an aim so noble. 

But, as worded in their Index, 
By the 'oS's great historian, 
The great Homo-matsoo-bowwow, 
Who with pen indeed is mighty, 
They went first upon the war path 
With the aim to hasten bloodshed, 
Went, that Freshmen scalps might dangle 
And hang dripping from their tent poles.

From tin* time before the snow fell, 
In the tinted days of autumn. 
To the time when grass and blossoms, 
Springing up o'er all the landscape, 
Made the lovely face of Nature 
Smile so pleasingly upon us 
That our hearts were held enraptured 
Bv the beauty she presented; 
During all this weary season 
Were the Sophomore marauders 
Ever painted, ever hideous, 
Ever sending forth shrill war whoops, 
And in mid-air waving weapons, 
Which they called in humor Lt paddles, " 
Often out upon the war path. 

Many trails beyond the campus 
Softly did they tread in darkness, 
And each time some humble Freshmen 
Fell into their lawless clutches 
And, "mid yells and fiendish dancing, 
Were made means of entertainment, 
Were enforced to run the gauntlet 
'Neath a blistering rain of war clubs, 
Were made cause of much exulting 
On the part of their tormentors. 

Yet, though filled with sore displeasure 
At the manv tours of rampage 
Which the Sophomores indulged in, 
"09 held their peace and waited, 
Waited in supposed submission, 
Waited while their hearts grew anxious 
In the turmoil of their feelings, 
And the longing for a conflict 
Made appear the whole horizon 
Like a great and ugly war cloud, 
Drawing nearer, always nearer; 
Waited, lest the deadly hatchet, 
Once unearthed and put to usage, 
Might draw down such strife and warfare 
As to deluge with ill-feeling 
And the bitterness of conflict 
Those who for the common welfare 
Should have been as brothers living. 

But their tribe held one called "Mighty, 1 ' 
One whose will was strong and steadfast 
And who in his heart determined 
Not to please the band of Soph'mores 
By permitting them to catch him. 
He was wary and was guarded 
By brave holders of his friendship. 

Oh the nights of sleepless vigil! 
Oh the days of disappointment! 
Oh the chagrin, inward gnawing. 
Making bitter all existence, 
Which beset the '08 warriors 
As their big chiefs failed to capture 
" Mighty " in his guarded wigwam. 

Then in malice held they council, 
And one brave in oral diction 
Spake his mind in words of this wise:

THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 








" Brother warriors, listen to me. 
Many moons have made their passage 
Since we set ourselves to capture 
One of '09's tribe, called "Mighty," 
Yet the deed is not accomplished, 
And the women and the children 
Point their fingers in derision 
At the lusty band of warriors, 
Who"can not succeed in dragging 
One lone Freshman from his wigwam. 
We have boasted to immerse him 
In the waters of the lakelet, 
Yet have all attempts been futile, 
And he still goes forth in freedom. 
Shall we then, as men defeated, 
Fold our hands and stand here idle ? 
There are other Freshmen, brothers, 
Whose resistance we may laugh at, 
And this night, if swift in action, 
We may gather in a handful, 
Drag them forth into the darkness, 
Cast them far upon the waters, 
And strike terror to the inmates 
Of the many '09 wigwams. 
Think upon it. I have spoken." 

And the plan was executed 
As the war chief had suggested. 
In the stillness of the small hours, 
When '09 lay steeped in slumber, 
Certain members were abducted; 
Stealthily were they escorted 
To the place beyond the campus 
Where the small waves, in soft cadence, 
Lisp their secrets to the spruce trees, . 
There were plunged beneath the surface 
With but little ceremony, 
While the Soph'mores stood exulting, 
Feeling now that they had conquered. 

In the morning, as the tidings 
Of this final act of outrage 
Passed around among the Freshmen, 
Hard grew every heart with anger, 
And their minds and wills determined 
That a speedy retribution 
Must befall that tribe of warriors 
Who drew glory from indulging 
Passions for such lowly pastimes. 

And all hearts were fired with feeling 
At the justice of the purpose 
To inflict retaliation 
On their enemies, the Soph'mores. 

In the silence of the nighttime 
Careful plans were laid in secret. 
And, at time and place appointed, 
By the chiefs in consultation, 
In the darkness of the midnight, 
When the bats and singing insects 
Only showed the love for action, 
When the hush of languid stillness 
Creeping into 'oS's wigwams 



MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE

Lulled to sleep their drowsy warriors, 
•Gathered an imposing body, 
Numbering nearly all the members 
Of the worthy tribe of Freshmen. 

As Time, with advancing footsteps, 
Tireless, ceaseless, endless footsteps, 
Reached those hours before the dawning, 
When dark Night her trailing garments 
Gathers close, and with jet blackness 
Paints the shadows on the landscape, 
Came the signal to move forward. 

Then in stealth the trail was taken 
Leading to the silent wigwams 
Where dwelt those who had been chosen 
From the band of Soph' more warriors 
To pass through the list of horrors 
Which their tribesmen, while exulting, 
Had imposed upon the Freshmen. 

In the village of South College 
And the neighb'ring one, North College, 
Many SoprTmores dwelt together, 
With their lodges close adjoining, 
So that entrance was made easy 
From one wigwam to another; 
And without the hapless village, 
And without the great South College, 
Where the unsuspecting Sophomores 
Lay like logs upon their couches, 
Did the '09 tribe assemble. 

Then were detailed certain members, 
Who, in stealth and silence creeping, 
Tried the doors and tried the windows, 
Yet were all securely fastened, 
For the Sophomores were cautious. 

The invaders, not despairing, 
Nothing daunted by the hardness 
Of the task they now confronted, 
Raised their war clubs, smote with quickness, 
Smote the windows and the doorways, 
Smote with heavv blows and mighty, 
And the glass frames crashing inward, 
And the panels of the doorways 
Being crushed by blows to splinters, 
Gave first notice to the SoprTmores 
That some grave disaster threatened, 
That among them moved intruders 
Bent on mischief, bent on vengeance. 

Some brave spirits dwelt among them 
Who arose and made resistance, 
Fought with strength and fought with courage 
The attacks of their assailants. 
But soon were they rendered helpless, 
And were taken out as prisoners, 
Who, led forth in thin night-garments, 
Trembled as they viewed the angry, 
Surging concourse gathered outside. 

Then with daring born of courage, 
Then with quickness and decision, 
Did the warlike tribe of Freshmen 
Hasten to the second village 
And the smaller, called North College. 
Here some SoprTmores, made disquiet 
By the sound of many footsteps

On the beaten trails all leading 
To the doorways of their wigwams, 
Thrust their heads forth in the darkness, 
And, perceiving and beholding 
Enemies in startling numbers 
Gathered to assail their dwellings, 
In affright their voices lifted, 
And loud cries for help were sounded 
And sent pealing down the valley. 
But the Freshmen boldly entered 
And drew forth, despite all struggle, 
Still another band of prisoners, 
Robed in pale and clinging garments. 

Then did vengeance, like the lightning, 
Like the firebolt shooting downward, 
In whose pathway lies no safety, 
From whose pathway no escape is, 
Strike, and, striking, served its purpose. 

For now were the restless prisoners 
Swiftly driven toward the lakelet, 
Driven o'er the peaceful landscape, 
Driven o'er the sloping grassland, 
Straight and swift as flies the arrow 
Were they driven toward the lakelet. 
As the great wind from the northwest 
Drives the fleecy clouds before it, 
So that as we gaze we see them 
Robed in white and fleeting onward, 
Thus did '09 drive their prisoners. 
Fleetly, in their robes of whiteness, 
They traversed the dewy meadow, 
Paused not in their mad race onward 
To be told the why and wherefore,- 
Paused not, when they reached the lakelet, 
To reflect upon its wetness, 
But, as by some great propulsion, 
Launched themselves upon its surface, 
And with sputterings and shivers 
They embraced the limpid waters. 

Then in bold and hearty spirit 
'09 sent their gladsome war cry, 
Far resounding down the valley, 
While the hills both near and distant, 
In the same bold, hearty spirit, 
Rendered back a faithful echo. 
Thus they showed their approbation. 

But soon messengers with tidings, 
Fleet of foot and bearing orders 
Calling for a general union 
Of the entire tribe of Soph'mores, 
Spread themselves throughout the valley. 
Once again the air was hideous 
With the piercing "08 war whoops, 
As they gathered from all quarters 
At the bidding of their chieftains. 
Meanwhile, '09, closely gathered 
On a corner of the campus, 
Sang their challenge in defiance, 
Sang it with such lusty ardor 
That the ancient hills reechoed.

As the damp, gray mists of morning 
Slowly lifted from the landscape, 
Lifted and were dissipated 
Bv the great Sun now uprising, 
Pointing with his fiery scepter 
And so driving them before him, 
Came these two tribes now together, 
Came the '09 tribe, the Freshmen, 
Came the 'oS tribe, the SoprTmores, 
Came and entered into conflict. 

Why depict the fierce encounter? 
Where, in brave and fearless rushes, 
Each side sought to bear the other 
Backward from the field of battle, 
Backward, until sore despairing, 
They should flee and thus be vanquished. 

But the 09 tribe like rocks stood, 
Yes, as firm and moveless stood they 
As the rocks which form the mountains 
Rising on the distant sky-line. 
And the Sophomores, agreeing 
And admitting they were conquered, 
Drew their forces from the conflict, 
Drew them off and were desirous 
To begin negotiations. 

Then stepped forth the chiefs to parley, 
Stepped forth those of might on both sides, 
And approaching talked together, 
Seriously they talked together; 
Earnest was their consultation, 
Solemn their deliberations. 
But the terms of peace, when settled, 
Bound the tribes in bonds of friendship, 
And the tribes shook hands together, 
Smoked the calumet, the peace-pipe, 
And agreed to live as brothers. 

So was ended that great warfare 
Of the '09 tribe, the Freshmen, 
With the '08 tribe, the Soprfmores, 
And they since have dwelt as brothers.

Flashed all their pencils bare, 
Flashed as they turned in air,

Ye Faculty Are Beaten 

At last the famous Faculty team of the M. A. C. has met defeat at the hands of 
the students. This was brought about by means of a baseball game indulged in 
between the Faculty and 1907, and is, perhaps, the only occasion in which the Faculty 
met defeat in a pitched battle. 

The game was played during the drill period, and was well attended by the 
students, who cheered lustily for the Faculty in view of the approaching exams, and, 
led by Professor Haskell, some tall rooting was the result. 

Shortly after three o'clock Captain Waugh appeared, leading his team, which 
proceeded to throw a few kinks out of wings that were knotted with age, and in a few 
moments the battle was on. Cooley, of story book fame, was the first to the plate, 
and, after shaping up like a major league slugger, slammed the first ball pitched, over 
second for a neat single, and a moment later electrified the fans by gracefully stealing 
second. "Jocko" Fernald chased three bad ones and sat down among three silent 
cheers. "Kid" Howard then waltzed to the plate, among thunderous applause 
from the peanut gallery and elsewhere, and earned a place for himself in the Hall 
of Fame by scoring Cooley with a Texas Leaguer over Hartford's head. Osmun 
ended the inning by flying out. 

The Faculty then took the field and the Kid proceeded to stop Walker's hot 
shot, but, finding his chest protector very untidy, vacated this position for third base, 
where he gave a most startling exhibition, especially on ground hits, reminding one 
very much of a grasshopper during haying time. Forristall, in right field, had things 
his own way, and got along finely, until Cy Watkins hit one into his territory, when 
his fielding average dwindled from 1,000 to .000. Waugh also showed in the lime- 
light, beating the famous Rouge in left field into a frazzle by pulling a drive down 
from Cutter's bat that was labeled for three bases. 

So the battle waged, the Seniors finally taking the leading parts in the melo- 
drama, and coming home with the bells on by a score of 8 to 4. Great was the re- 
joicing and gnashing of teeth, but what's the use, said the Faculty, "We can't beat 'em 
in everything."

\\ hile Osmun was taking us 'round one day, 

A-lookin' for myxomycetes, 
Pat and Cros and Bud started in 

To perform some equestrian feats. 
Some horses were grazing near by in a field; 

Says Pat, "Hold one, and I'll ride." 
So, they catching one by the end of the snout, 

Pat sidled up close to his side, 
Then up and upon his back he jumped, 

And, they letting go of the end of his nose, 
Pat lit in a heap on the ground where they stood 

In a very uncomfortable pose. 

And then we went fishing for algae, too; 

It was nearly the first of November, 
And the water was nice and warm, you know, 

Though not so warm as the first of September. 
"Well," says Gummy, "Let's go for a swim." 

"I'll go if you'll go," says Bart with a grin. 
Then Dick looked at Bart, and Bart looked at Dick, 

And Dick looked at Bart once more, 
Then off came the duds and in they jumped, 

But were glad to pull for the shore.

Company I 

This is the squad that one morning in May 

Took a trip 'round the drill hall to spend half a day. 

A more industrious bunch there never was gleaned, 

And when they left Johnnie they never were seen. 

Company I was the title by which they were called, 

And what they couldn't do — no use trying at all. 

If, perchance, not engaged in some athletic feat, 

For a brief recreation they'd lie down to sleep. 

To tell more of this squad would, of course, never do, 

The big question is, How many got through ?

Telmah's Soliloquy 



\ 



(In blind verse) 

O haze, or not to haze, — that is the question: 
Whether 'tis nobler in the minds of Sophs 
To suffer the offences of unheeding Freshmen, 
Or to make fair trial of the college pond, 
And by judicious ducking end them ? To haze: 
To nip the growth of faulty tendencies 
In under classmen, so that, in after life, 
They may develop along the lines 
Of universal good, — 'tis a consummation 
Devoutly to be wish'd. To haze — to duck; — 
To smite! perchance to wrong: — ay, there's the rub; 
For wounds unto the spirit may prove worse 
Than ills which by the body must be borne. 
To suffer humiliation undeserved 
May rankle more and longer in the breast 
Than bruises by a vicious paddle raised, 
Or sousings in the pond, tho' oft applied. 
And since 'tis hard for Justice, being blind, 
To discriminate always in faultless way, 
It e'er must happen that some innocents 
Are forced to bear the chastening due to those 
Who are trangressors in deliberate sense: 
Thus the pond may often cure, may sometimes harm. 
Yet, e'en tho' sometimes harmful, this is true, — 
'Tis not the mere cold bath that does most good, 
But the wholesome fear such practice does inspire. 
To keep the many under wise restraint 
The Sophs need cast in but a chosen few; 
For 'tis the dread of some such consequence, 
Treading on the heels of license bold, 
That keeps most members of the infant class 
Within the humble path which they should tread. 
Thus water doth make cowards of us all; 
For who would bear the sneers and gibes of Sophs, 
The oppressor's wrong, the juvenile's miseries, 
The pangs of merit held obscured, delays of fame, 
The lowly tasks enforced, and the spurns 
That patient Freshmen from upper classmen take, 
When each one might independent be 
By scorning college customs ? 
But that the fear of something to befall, — 
The unexplored bottom of the pond, 
From which no one returns but caked with mud, — 



THE 1909 INDEX VOLUME XXXIX 



Makes them rather bear the ills they have 

Than sink to others lodged in chilly depths. 

If college customs are to be obeyed, — 

And who so rash as controvert the fact ? — 

Then hazing, in some form, must be applied, 

For else would anarchy make endless turmoil 

Of college life. 

Discard the paddle; — keep the good old pond. 

To govern puerile Freshmen by the fear 

Of frisky paddle hovering in the rear 

Is less efficient, harder to maintain, 

Than the wholesome dread of bathing 'neath the moon, 

In domains where the froggies like to "spoon." 

The pond is near, — and in a wise subjection 

Must Freshmen e'er be held, — 

So, for the unruly, let the grass-nmmed lake 

A rightful purpose serve. Ay, throw them in! 

And let the waters, closing o'er the few, 

Help all ill-meaning Freshmen to subdue. 

If hazing is to stop, the pond must go, 

Be filled, grassed over, and defaced quite; 

For not until its surface lies obscured, — 

Unless, perchance, newcomers perfect are, — 

Will Freshmen cease quaint ripples to promote 

Upon its placid bosom. 



Guess Again 

Haskell. — "Mr. Monahan, would this soil be in better condition it plowed in-

Haskell. — "You have a very poor imagination, Mr. Monahan."

the foot of an elephant ?"

THE SPRIXGFIELD DAILY REPUBLICAN: SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1906. 



EVADED THE SOPHOMORES. 



State Agricultural College Freshmen 
Get Attbt From Amh>erst and Hold 
Banquet in This City. 

Intermittent yells, in which the words 
"noughty nine" were plainly distinguish- 
able, overflowed the bierstube at the High- 
land hotel last night, for an even 52 fresh- 
men of the Massachusetts state college at 
Amherst held their dass banquet there. 
The boys are an exuberant lot, and they 
were more so than ever yesterday, for they 
successfully eluded the not-so-vigilant 
sophomores, and the banquet which they 
held '"counted." The sophomores were 
plaiuly outwitted, for they did not appear 
to kuow where the banquet was being held, 
and Sergeant D. J. Manning and Offi- 
cer A. F. Ward were on hand ready to 
suppress any sophomore "buttinski'' there, 
but no one showed up, and Sergeant Man- 
ning was able to telephone Marshal Steb- 
bins in the middle of the dinner that all 
was going well, 

The getting away from the college was 
the main feature of the class dinner, and 
the freshmen are elated that only one 
member of importance was held a pris- 
oner. This was A. E. Cox of Maiden, 
chairman of the committee of arrange- 
ments. He was unable to take part in 
the festivities. By the rules of the game 
the dinner has to be held in the last two 
months and a half of the college year, and 
the sophomores have been on the lookout 
for the dinner. Alfred E. Cox, Jr., L. S. 
C'orbett and H. N. Tucker, who were the 
committee of arrangements, secretly laid 
the plans, and yesterday morning at 2.30 
about 30 of the freshmen quietly "lit out." 
They walked to Hadley, where they had a 
special trolly car awaiting them. On the 
way they were overtaken by some 15 soph- 
omores, who did their best to put a stop 
to proceedings. A free fight took place at 
the street car. The. freshmen had billies, 
which they used to good advantage, and 
the president of the sophomores was laid 
out by one of them. Another member re- 
ceived a painful kick in the stomach. The 
car also was a bit the worse for wear with 
a few smashed windows. 



The dinner started at 8 and lasted- well 
into the night. James V. Mouahan was 
toastmaster, and the following toasts were 
responded to: "Massachusetts," Charles 
H. White: "Class of 1909," Gordon R. Ful- 
ton; "The kid," S. S. Crossman; "Billv 
the bull," E. J. Burke;- "Herrick," Walter 
J. Kenney. Other speakers were Patricio 
Cardin, D. J., Caffrey, R. Potter, H. P. 
Crosby and R. D. Lull. 

The banquet is an annual affair, which 
the "sophs" endeavor to break up. They 
can do this so that it will be considered 
"no banquet" or "a victory for the 
'sophs' " by capturing or holding the fresh- 
man president, or by keeping away from 
the banquet one-half the members of the 
class. The class this year numbers about 
70, and therefore the victory was plainly 
with the freshmen. The freshmen are rath- 
er inclined to criticise the action of the 
sophomores for not abiding by the new 
rules of the senate regarding the banquet. 
The "revote" of the college this year de- 
creed that freshmen must not be molested 
outside of the town limits.' But the soph- 
omores did not hesitate to pass across the 
town line. Not all the freshmen came with 
tljie trolly car bunch, which went to 
Northampton and took the train to this 
city. Various members trickled into the 
city all the afternoon. Coleman was chased 
six miles over the Notch by pursuing 
sophomores before he threw them off the 
scent. Paddock climbed Mt Warner for 
a similar reason. Bean had to .iunip from 
a second-story window. The boys spent 
most of the day in their rooms at the 
Highland. In the afternoon they went to 
the Nelson, but hustled back to their rooms 
at once after the show. They spent the 
night in this city, and will attend the 
game this afternoon between their alma 
mater and the 'training school. The boys 
were more than pleased with the treat- 
ment at the Highland. The officers of the 
class are: President, Gordon R. Fulton; 
vice-president, Richard K. Potter; treas- 
urer, Robert B. Lull; secretary, Charles 
H. White; class captain, Luther G. Willis; 
sergeant-at-arms, Harold P. Crosby; his- 
torian, Donald J. C'nffrey.

Sonnet to G. A. B. 



Vv hen there came to us, from o'er the seas, 

One who was rear'd in England's sturdy clime, 

Vv ith quiet interest, we left to Time 

The task of proving up his qualities; 

And Time, with haste, did set itself to please, 

And soon did show a heart both large and warm, 

Which left on each the impress of its charm; 

A charm which memory doth hut increase. 

He hath left good-will anchored in our hearts. 

The mutual enjoyment found in class 

We still recount, yet hold the knowledge gained, 

And, as we now fulfill our varied parts, 

With pleasant mem'ries turn we toward the past; 

With wishes best, turn toward our absent friend.

A Chronicler's Fate 




CLOWN who did possess but humble wit 

Sat down with pen in hand to make a "hit," 

But ere he started, this thought came to worry: 

"Whom shall I hit?" It put him in a flurry; 

He pawed his hair; in every way he tried 

Upon some special victims to decide; 

But all for naught, the more he sought to choose, 

The more he did his muddled brain confuse, 

And into such a state of mind was wrought. 

He scarcely could command a single thought. 

So, lest his store of wit be put to flight, 

This clown decided, now in frantic plight. 

To call up every mortal that he knew, 

And on each one bestow a crack or two. 

Yet, though the store of wit he had amassed 

Strong was at first, it dwindled toward the last, 

And so discouraged grew he at his task. 

Despite a liberal draining of the flask, 

That at the end he sank down in a heap, 

And was content to start his endless sleep. 

Yet, though he was a fool, he still was brave, 

As show these few lines picked up near his grave: 

"My task has bettered me; I go to rest. 

Though humble my endeavor, 'twas my best. 

If I have hurt, it saddens, I confess, 

To know I may not live to make redress: 

But I must leave the field; my course is run: 

So, censure not the dead; 'twas all in fun."

Chronicles of Naughty-Nine 

WILLIAM EVERETT ADAMS. 

The only time that anyone ever heard of Adams was in 
class meeting one day, when, being "thoroughly wound up," as 
he very happily expressed it, he gave us the address of welcome 
as president of the Ami-Hazing League. 
He then ran down, and the sun has not 
radiated sufficient energy since to in- 
still into the heart of anyone a desire 
to wind him up again. Adams was 
meant as a Christmas gift in 1886, but, 
owing to a flood of orders, arrived 
three days late. Bill tells us that he 
spent most of his life among the "peda- 
gogic folk of the typical New England 
town of Chelmsford." After graduating 
from the Chelmsford High School in 
1905 in an exceptionally large class ot 
five, he decided, not without some misgivings and hesitation, to venture away from home for a 
while, and entered with '09 here at M. A. C. Adams, as a result of his talented temperment, 
became leader of the College Orchestra. He has been elected to the College Signal staff and 
is a promoter of Y. M. C. A. interests. He is a member of C. S. C. 





PAUL EDGAR ALGER. 

"A merrier man 
Within the limit of becoming mirth 
I never spent an hour's talk withal.' 

This Prunus domestua, or "domesticated prune," grew 
into being in the city of Somerville, Massachusetts, on August 
1 6th, 1887. Here he was tamed and developed within sight of 
the statehouse dome and Bunker Hill 
Monument, so his hair took the color of the 
gilded dome and his build the solidity of 
the granite monument. If Paul had only 
had something to inspire his nerve as well, 
he might be on the varsity football squad 
by this time. However, he gained a place 
on the class football, basketball, and base- 
ball teams. But, to retrace our flight, 
Paul was educated and graduated from 
the Somerville Latin High School in 1905. 
Now just what to do with him was a problem indeed. He looked 
bright, but didn't like study; had a strong frame, but didn't like work. 
So they sent him to M. A. C, where he wouldn't have to study ( ?) or 
work, and where his good looks and vocabulary might save the day for 
him — and they have, so far. He made good use of the latter during his 
Freshman year, when he gave such a masterly rendering of "Crime Its Own Detector," that 
he almost got into Stealthy Steve's class, and, indeed, did draw second prize from the Burnham 
Speaking. He is a member of the Senate, too. Paul has started out canvassing more than once 
since he entered college to make a livelihood during the summer. One of his starts is illustrated 
herewith. I his, we presume, is why he dropped it so early in the previous season. 





MASSACHUSETTS AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 



BENJAMIN FRANKLIN BARNES, JR. 

Everyone knows about Peckerhill; if they don't, they 
to, for this is where Ben Barnes was blown in on Novembe 
1886. This was a serious blow, and one that almost 
father, for Ben's early appearance was 
certainly disquieting. Ben is like a bull- 
dog; when he becomes firmly attached 
to a person or place it is hard to shake 
him. This is shown by his affinity for 
Peckerhill and Hathaway. He left 
Peckerhill only long enough to go to 
school, and was finally graduated from 
the Haverhill High School in 1905. His 
next step into the class of 1909 was the 
biggest step of his life. Ben's chief 
characteristic is his unsophisticated lo- 
quaciousness in the presence of femininity. He is an imposing 
factor at the Grange, and can beat even Professor Waugh at playing 
' Tucker. " Ben's grace of carriage is exceeded only by his good looks.

OSCAR CHRISTOPHER BARTLETT. 

This is IT. In this budget are mingled the qualities of 

Oscar Wilde and Gee Christopher, and we don't know how many 

others. Oscar arrived at Westhampton on Sunday, April 1st, 

1883. It was one of the biggest "April 

fool" tricks that his parents ever had 

played on them. Oscar soon learned 

to talk (some say he didn't have to 

learn), and from that time on has 

amazed all hearers by the number of 

words he can employ to clothe a single 

thought. He says he can talk without 

thinking, and we feel that there is no 

doubt of it. Oscar attended the East- 

hampton High School for two years, 

and then shifted to Williston Academy, 
where, after two years more, he graduated with a scientific diploma. 
After this triumph, he tried surveying out in North Dakota, until a 
prairie wind caught him up and blew him east again, where he lit on the M. A. C. campus 
just behind the bat. He soon got his bearings and started in to tear up everything in sight, 
from the Faculty down. He has gained some special honors here, and likes M. A. C. as his 
home. Oscar is capable of a "long pull and a strong pull," for he served with true grit on each 
of '09's successful rope-pull teams. He also hypnotized the audience in the Burnham Prize 
Speaking, when a Freshman, and drew the first prize. "If he had had time," his ability as a 
catcher would, no doubt, have placed him on the varsity baseball team, but, as it is, he plays 
on the left-out team. Oscar is a member of C. S. C. He has also been put on the Senate to 
generate heat and keep their schemes from congealing.

WALDO DARIUS BARLOW. 




This wanderer, after a parley with "Big Chief 
Billy," walked into the camp of 1909 last fall, and dis- 
played his scalps obtained through the mighty use of 
the switch in Hawaii. After he had been cornered, he 
told us where he had been spending his time, and 
gave us his life history. Born in Sturbridge, April 
10th, 1885, later he moved to Southbridge, and was 
graduated from the Southbridge High School in 1903. 
Then he came to M. A. C. and entered with '07. 
He remained with '07 for two years, and then the "call 
of the wild" came to him, and he pulled up stakes and 
made for Hawaii, where he has been teaching the 
natives how to comb their hair and use toothpicks. 
We wish he had taught them to trim their language. 
He taught in the Kamehameha School, of Honolulu. 
But while in Hawaii, Barlow again caught the M. A. C. fever and had to return 
to Amherst. And here he is. Since joining '09 he has taken many photographs 
for the Index, and when you see him with his tripod and outfit, you may be sure 
that there is something doing. He is also somewhat of a ladies' man. He is a 
member of Phi Sigma Kappa, and is organist. 

ORWELL BURLTON BRIGGS. 

This single-minded individual with a confusion of ideas 
sprang into the game of life at Saint Vincent, Ontario, Canada, on 
October 16th, 1887. "Oleo" has been playing a hard game ever 
since. Becoming dissatisfied with the 

Queen's policy, he climbed upon a wan- 
dering mosquito and was lugged ofF down , 
to New Jersey. Some years later, we find I 
him living in Egremont, Massachusetts, 
attending the Searle High School, and at 
peace with himself, though not with the 
world. " Briggsy " always had a great head, 
and when he came to M. A. C, cast it in 
with the other heads making up the '09 
Cooperative Brainworks. He keeps the 
names and data of all the alumni in his 
cranium, and, besides this, is always full of restless ideas, which 
keep his gray matter in more or less of a turmoil all the time. 
Orwell holds down positions on both the Signal and Index boards, sh ffl'ows, r hive 
and also manages to chuck a few ideas together, which he calls 
"class history." Besides being a literary genius, Oleo is a man of action. He believes in 
bringing things to pass— noticeably "hacks." The best time that Briggsy ever had in his 
life was when he chased up the Freshmen on a freight train last spring, when they went off 
on their banquet. He never tires of talking of Massachusetts scenery as viewed from a 
freight car. Oleo smokes a little now and then, but he is too practical ever to be found idly 
puffing at the weed. When he does indulge, he fills up a curious old pipe that droops far down 
over his chest, and, while soothing his restless spirit, fumigates the Bug Lab at the same 
tim . Nevertheless, Oleo is a fine fellow, and we wish him the success he aims for — which 
is by no means small. He is a member of the Q_- T. V.

life on August 4th, 1880, in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Life not 
being exciting enough here, at the age of five he followed down 
the coast and harbored at'Cambridge, Massa- 
chusetts. This, being near the "Hub" of 
events, was evidently to his liking. Now, by 
hard and long research all about here, he 
was enabled to gather together an education 

to to 

suited to the gray convolutions of his pre- 
cocious brain. Not belonging to the union, 
and believing in long, hard hours, he attended 
the Boston Evening High School for two 
years previous to his coming here with us. 
He came here to us a man of the world, with 
knowledge and wisdom. One must judge 
that his is a very influential personality, for his immediate friends are all 
growing wise. However, he is the class rough-houser, and has the dis- 
tinction of being the secretary of the Y. M. C. A. He is the advance advertising agent of this 
latter concern, hatching up many a shrewd scheme with Charlie White as regards its welfare: 
However, George is not going to be limited in his development, and announces that during 
these last two years he will develop his talent as a charmer of the fair ones and practice the 
dainty art of fussing. He is a member of Q_. T. V., orator, philosopher, philanthropist, and 
student. 






DONALD JOHN CAFFREY. 

Look out — for here comes Mighty Buck CafTrey, of Gardner, 
the town of the seven stores. Mighty was born in Brooklyn, 
N. Y., but soon heard of Gardner, and Gardner was the only 
place for him. He was captain of the 
Gardner High School football team for 
two years, and you will still hear Buck 
tell of the time when Worcester came 
to Gardner and handed Gardner a lemon 
to the tune of 29 to o. He graduated 
in 1905, and, getting wind of the fact that 
Spider Fulton was going to join '09, came 
along too. Buck was an ideal Freshman, 
except for a little trouble he had with '08, 
and came back to us as a Sophomore 
with a full realization of his duties in 



that capacity. He went out for the varsity football, but when Pad- 
dock put it all over him he quit and has since been known as "Varsity." 
Mighty played class football two years, was our class historian, and 



is responsible for a share of this Index, 
of H. H. 



He is a member of C. S. C, and a charter mem

PATRICIO GNEROSO PENARREDONDA CARDIN. 

This is Pat's common name. We haven't room in this 
short article for his scientific appellation. No wonder Pat is 
small, for he has been trailing this name after him ever since 
he was very young, and it has sorely retarded his 
development. Pat began life in Artemisa in the 
sunny isle of Cuba, on July 17th, 1884. After a lux- 
urious existence for some years on cocoanuts, pine- 
apples, bananas, and crocodiles, and serene enjoy- 
ment of the mild pleasures of Havana, such as bull- 
fights, etc., Pat heard something about the United 
States, and longed to see the place. So he made a 
leisurely trip hither, stopping to play a tune on the 
Florida Keys, and paused in New York City until 
he had mastered the "Riot Act." This accom- 
plished, he entered the New York Military Academy 
and whooped things up for fair. There being no Fussers' Club there, however, 
Pat did not like it. So, after he had obtained his diploma in 1904, he sought a 
place where his wild Cuban spirit might have full sway. He found it at M. A. C. 
In the excitement of keeping pace with '09, and the privilege of fussing to his 
heart's content, Pat has wished for nothing more, except, perhaps, to be able to 
wake up some morning and find that the science of mathematics had been 
obliterated forever. If Billy only taught Pomology, Pat would worship him. Pat was man 
ager of the Sophomore rope-pull team of '09, and is a member of Q. T. V. and H. H. societies

EDWARD IRVING CHASE. 

This is "Sherlock Holmes" in disguise, or "Stealthy Steve. " 
Stealthy was born in Somerville, December 15th, 1883, and 
graduated from the Somerville High School in 1904. He came 
to us from the "Shorthorns," where he 
made a grand attempt to put it over "Chico" 
Lewis, who suffered the consequences. 
However, he has helped us out some in class 
matters, and played on our Sophomore foot- 
ball team. Stealthy must live on Force, for 
he wears that smile that will not come off, a 
grin half savage, half bewitching. In his 
Freshman year Steve advertised the M. A. C. 
uniform in the North Station, Boston, and 
this helped to make him famous. Now he 
wears a hat which, perhaps, came over on the 
Mayflower by the looks of it. But, in spite of all his eccentricities, Steve has a big heart, 
and believes in the "square deal." He shines in Math, and, except for the speed at which 
he delivers his recitations, in the other studies as well; but we have not forgotten the break 
he made in Polycon a short time ago. Vive le Steve!

GEORGE MELVIN CODDING. 

"The frivolous works of polished idleness." 
This brilliant moth first spread its wings in a greenhouse 
on December I2th, 1886. To look at George now, one would 
think that he was meant to live under glass all his life, for he 
looks too smooth and cute to be able to win a prize in the 
world's hard struggle. He never developed any of those 
square corners which need to be rounded, or any of 
those bumps which come to those who face the hard 
propositions of life. These never troubled George. 
But, while his engrossing occupation is " trying to look 
pretty," he possesses activity enough to enjoy himself 
and have a jolly good time in any place and at any 
time. George was born in Taunton, Massachusetts, 
and fluttered around the Taunton High School, until 
they opened a window and let him out in 1905. He 
brought his certificate straight to M. A. C, and showed 
it to "Billy," who said he might enter. Here, we call him "Fat" and "Dutch" by 
turns, much to his pleasure and ours. Fat's hardest work in college was done on 
the surveying squad, where he used to he on his back on the campus and survey the 
clouds as they drifted by. Tohnny-O happened along one day and surveyed Fat. Then Fat 
got "busy" in earnest. "Dutch" is a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa. 





LAMERT SEYMOUR CORBETT. 

The cachinnative and uncanny roar of this personality was first 
heard on February nth, 1887, in Jamaica Plains, Massachusetts. 
The echo of this event resounded throughout the Plains, and 
all the people wondered at it. However, 
they wondered not long, for "Men's" 
infantile steps soon led him to an ice 
team which he had espied in the dis- 
tance. At this time he received his 
first lesson regarding the ice business. 
Since then, he has regarded himself as 
a potent factor in the business. He en- 
joys handling the cool cakes in the 
summer days, and buggy-riding behind 
the big horses in the evening This figure 
does not betray it, but we tell you con- 
fidentially that Mert is quite a fusser. However, Mert says 
he put enough time in at the West Roxbury High School to get a diploma in '04. Then he spent 
a year breaking the sad news to the ice business, and came here with us in '05. Mert has suc- 
cessfully voiced his way through here up to date. We can't quite figure out how he has "got by," 
though. During the first of his stay here he was tried out in the choir, but proved absolutely 
unfitted to sing with the Kid. We, realizing his good qualities, however, have stood by him 
and his bark. As you might judge from his picture, Mert has a military bearing, and he 
hopes to become major. Mert did a good deed for us in playing Sophomore football, and 
also pulling on the rope-pull team in our Sophomore year. He is a member of the H. H. so- 
ciety and the Q_. T. V.

HAROLD PARSONS CROSBY. 

A good many different kinds of protoplasmic combinations 
have struck M. A. C, but when this bunch of gifted enthusiasm 
came into our midst, we all stopped, looked, and admired. The 
people of Lenox accepted this strenuous and 
hilarious burden on November 25th, 1887, and since 
then, "Cros" has grown to be an inseparable part 
of those Grand Old Berkshire Hills, about which 
he never tires of telling us. "Cros" has a capacity 
for more enthusiasm than any other four men in 
M. A. C, and it is as difficult to ruffle his sunny 
nature as it is to ruffle the waters of the college 
pond by blowing on them. Crosby's whole sys- 
tem seems to be built on the principles of music, 
and there is always concord and harmony where 
"Cros" is. "Cros" played on class football; 
helped win the rope-pull; plays varsity football; has his name on the Index 
Board; plays a horn in the band; scrapes the fiddle in the orchestra, and, 
when he has nothing else on, goes chortling and cavorting all over the campus. 
He is a member of C. S. C, and the N. C. R. H. G. He has elected Biology, 
and we are glad, for, with Gordon at his heels, his abilities will have no time to

SAMUEL SUTTON CROSSMAN. 

This is Sarah. Pause a moment. To look at Sam, one 
might think him highly intellectual, but we who have spent 
two years with him know that the only study he likes is mathe- 
matics, and he, along with Bill Wilson, believes 
in getting all he can out of Johnny and Billy before 
finally parting with them. Yet, Sam, in spite of 
all his faults, is a good fellow and a strong class- 
man. He is a member of H. H., that gang of 
rough-housers, is president of our class, plays 
varsity football, and is manager of the varsity 
baseball team. He is a member of Q_- T. V. Sam 
was born at Needham, Massachusetts, May 30th, 
1887. He did the four years in Needham High 
in two, and then tried Rhode Island College for a 
year, but, being of a restless spirit, like Prexy, he 
here, and entered with '09. Prexy delighted in 



placing him on the Trophy Room Committee. Sam is a member of the Senate.

DAVID ALOVSIUS CURRAN. 

This is the Duke of Marlboro, the only represent- 
ative, besides Deck Howe, of the Highland City. 
The Duke lit in Marlboro during the dog days of 
1887, and registered his name on the town records 
on August nineteenth. The band turned out to 
welcome him, and even now, whenever 
he goes home, the town takes a half-holiday 
and celebrates. Dave graduated from 
the Marlboro High School in 1905, and 
came right up to make one more of '09's 
sturdy men. He belongs to the Jack 
Walsh Club, and is never seen without 
his pipe. He has been a strong man in the class, 
and on the class football team distinguished himself 
as a gritty player. 



HOMER CUTLER. 

To do Homer and his merits justice would require a volume, 
but here we must be content with one chapter. In 1881 the 
population of Arlington, Massachusetts, was substantially in- 
increased, on October 30th, by the advent of the Honorable Homer 
Cutler; but Arlington did not give perfect satisfaction, so, after 
a few months, Somerville was picked out as a culture more favor- 
able for his development, and Homer and "Pimple Pearce" 
went down to play with Bush Edwards. There he spent the 
first thirteen years of his life, when a spirit for roving and a desire 
to see the world came over him, and, since then, no town has 
been able to hold him for any length of time. Melrose, Cam- 
bridge, Eastondale, West Duxbury, Westboro, and Boston all 
claimed him for a time, and once he even crossed the Atlantic 
to get a look at Liverpool, England; but, not satisfied, took the 
first boat home. This traveling from place to place did not 
allow of much time to attend school, so Homer prepared for college while working in a machine 
shop in Westboro, and has come here to learn forestry, and eventually end up as Chief of the 
Forestry Bureau. Homer immediately be- 
came famous when he reached here, and 
many are the nights that he furnished en- 
tertainment for us. He was elected our 
first class sergeant-at-arms, and, through no 
fault of his, we were safely guided through the 
first semester's difficulties. Homer's features 
would remind one of a relief map of the 
Rocky Mountains, and one's first impression 

on seeing him would be that he had been ~ =S 

blasted off the side of a hill. He is a man of 

excellent moral conduct, rare personality, devoid of superficiality, though not free from simplicity.

GORDON RUSSELL FULTON. 

"Bud" was born in Lynn, Massachusetts, October 7th, 1888. 
He went to the Corbett Grammar School, and then to Lynn 
Classi.al High, graduating in 1905. When "Bud" anived here, 
the first one he saw was "Mighty Buck," and these two at once 
consolidated, forming a combination which it is awful to think 
about. Bud's long legs and extreme leanness have won him 
many names. The first name he got here was "String," and 
since then, he has been known as "Spike," "Stretch," 
"Lengthy," "Ostrich," "Feather," and "Flagpole." 
He is noted, besides this, for the large amount of ground 
that his feet can cover in one day. Someone has said 
that his shoes are No. 13, but it is a falsehood — they 
are only I if. It is said that in the summer time he 
rents them out for advertisements. Besides all these 
attributes, "Spider" is known as the only really scientific 
fusser in the class. Bud was chosen as one of the cheer leaders, because of his 
vociferous nature, and, besides, this lends to the discord of the Glee Club. He is 
also a member of the Senate, and belongs to C. S. C. 





CLARENCE AUGUSTUS GATES. 

Here we have the veritable See-Saw plum, or Primus atigus- 
tifolia. This one started into growth in Worcester, Massa- 
chusetts, on November 27th, 1885, just about Thanksgiving time, 
thus, at the onset, showing rudimentary evidence 
of that head work for which he is noted. Clarence, 
with his inborn love for experiments, first enrolled 
in the English High School of Worcester, but left 
off to have a try at the South High School. Here 
he was graduated in 1903, but in order to get his 
money's worth, he remained there a while longer, 
and took a P. G. course. Seeing fit to enter with 
us on our second semester, he butted in, struck his 
"gait," and has since acted as our pacemaker. 
We know him here as "Clancy." This man 
Clancy has come to be one of '09's most loyal 

members. He finds that his mouth can be responsible only for talking. 

Clancy played on the class baseball team, is a member of the C. S. C. fra- 

ernity, and also of the "I Tappa Keg."

MYRON FRANCIS GEER. 

This is one of the Geers. In this pair we have High, Low, 
Jack, and the Game, and Myron is "Low." It would be easier 
to lump them together under one head, but we are afraid it might 
lead to them or the reader getting mixed. Myron 
first faced the world, with true New England pluck, 
on April 30th, 1888, at Becket, Massachusetts. 
Being precocious, he soon grew to a head and has 
kept it ever since. This is lucky, for he has found 
plenty of use for it in his connection with '09. 
Myron, before coming to M. A. C, dwelt re- 
spectively in Becket, Chester, and Springfield, and 
was graduated with due ceremony from the" 
Springfield High School in 1905. It did not take 
Myron long to decide where to go next. He 
simply used his head and came to M. A. C, 
where he amalgamated with '09. Here he was received with joy and given 
the names of "Low Geer, " and "Lizzie."' The latter name suits Myron to a T, as 
he looks for all the world like some gentle maiden aunt. Lizzie is mighty with 
the pen. She gained first prize in the Burnham Essay contest, and is on the 
Index board, where she has made many a hit. 




WAYNE EMORY GEER. 

This is Geer No. 2, or "High" Geer. 
He opened the throttle for the first time on 
May 6th, 1885, in Becket, Massachusetts, 
and has kept full steam on ever since. 
That is why he is geared high. His very 
name (Emory) implies his grinding quali- 
ties. Wayne attended the Springfield High 
School for two years, and then went into 
paper making. Here, with commendable 
ambition, he attended the evening high 
school, and in due time found himself ready 
to enter college. As Myron was so set on 
coming to M. A. O, Wayne came up to 
look after him. That he has done so is 
shown by the exceptional and gentle de- 
meanor of his kid brother. Wayne has the driving power of a human 
locomotive, with which he intends to achieve success in life. He 
will do it, too. It is well known that Wayne's intentions are to become 
a prof.

ELMER FRANCIS HATHAWAY. 

March 25th, 1888, dawned clear and cool, so Elmer decided to 

put in an appearance at Cambridge, Massachusetts. He got 

along fine with the place and was in due time allowed to enter 

the Rindge Manual Training School. 

He exhibits some sort of documentary 

evidence of an honorary dismissal from 

this place in 1905. He came right up here 

with it that fall, and was allowed to enter 

with '09. Hathaway was surprised to find 

that he had a twin up here, assuming the 

name of Peckerhill. As the saying goes, 

"Birds of a feather flock together." Here 

we have an existing example of this self- 
same saying, for, in fact, these twins 

certainly do show a great affinity for 
each other. "Hat" has a mighty voice, and when allowed, can 
yell out a few orders to Company C, as though he were six feet two. 
Nevertheless, Hat is a good boy, and we put him on the Prom 
Committee. He pretends to play the mandolin, and is a member of Kappa Sigma

WARREN WILLIS HAYWARD. 

This individual had the audacity to enter into life's sphere 
June nth, 1887, at Millbury, Massachusetts. At a certain 
period in his growth he felt inclined, and listed at the Millbury 
High School. Here he says he got a diploma, 
but we could never figure out quite how he did 
this. Then in due time he butted in here as one 
of the '08 tribe. However, they were not quite 
to his liking, so he joined our ranks and so far, 
having found us congenial, has remained. "Lady's" 
capacity for butting in at all times and under 
all circumstances is unlimited, and in due recog- 
nition of this fact we have granted him a license. 
His is also the privilege of being a recent initiate 
into the Peekaboo Society, as founded by the 
co-eds.

EN LURY HSIEH. 

This little bunch of Oriental grit and brains 
was born at Tientsin, China, on August 2d, 1887. 
There he attended Tientsin University and came 
to M. A. C. in 1906. Though Hsieh has not been 
with us long, he has shown us, by example, some of 
the things that industry and application can do, 
and we have learned to respect this little giant for 
his intellect, his sincerity, and his modesty. Hsieh 
is quite a little soldier, and this is his great pride. 
When he stands up alongside of a gun, he looks 
very formidable, as the gun towers above his 
head. However, we feel that, if for every ten 
thousand people in China there is one as good 
as Hsieh, we need have no fear for China's future. 



ARTHUR WARD HUBBARD. 

"What care I if the sun don't shine as long as I can raise tobacco ?" 
This youth was born in Sunderland, Massachusetts, on 
September 27th, 1887. He spent eight years in the Sunderland 
District School, and then four years more in the Amherst High 
School. So "Hub" knew a thing or two before 
he reached M. A. C. Arthur is known as the 
"Hub" of the East Entry Gang, but they also call 
him "John" and "Razor-back" by way of 
variety. Hub twirled the little "sphere" for 
the A. H. S. baseball team and has continued 
the practice here at M. A. C. We show him in 
one of his most dignified and characteristic poses. 
He belongs to the Bush Eeague. Hub has been 
quieted down a good deal by his associations with 
'09. His chief occupation in winter is to sit by the radiators in North 
College, especially in No. 8, and smoke "Lucky Strike," carrying on, 
meanwhile, a heated argument with Rouge O'Grady. Hub adds to 
the harmony of the college band by producing a noise like a worn-out axle 
on a tip-cart. This may account for his title as "Lyre of the second class. " He 
visits Easthampton sometimes, being a member of the Fire Department, also 
ot the Tobacco Union. Hub is a member of the Q. T. V. fraternity, of 
the N. C. R. H. G., and A. O. U. T. He is specializing in Agronomy. We 
wish Hub success.

WARREN LEROY IDE. 

"Idsky," one of Dudley's most influential citizens, was born 
August 20th, 1886. He went to Nichols Academy, graduating 
in 1905, and, being the only member of distinction in his class, 
he was crowned with the honor of valedictorian. As he showed 
a strong propensity for domestic husbandry, and as his father 
did not wish to limit his capacity for usefulness, he urged him 
to come to M. A. C, and, Idsky's ambition for higher intellectual 
food being very intense, he joined '09, where he has been known 
as a shining light. Warren is one of those fellows who never 
let their studies interfere with their college course. However, 
he has walked all the way and has never used the pony. Idsky 
has developed a fine physique by his habits of exercise, and after 
graduating from M. A. C, he will follow agriculture as a pursuit. 




HUAN JEN. 

This Oriental was born on November 20th, 1887, in

for as such he is most properly known among us. 
tainly is a wide-awake boy, as his picture here shows, 
and believes in seeing as much of this world as pos- 
sible. He accordingly moved from Shanghai to 
Tientsin, there to behold the wonders of the place; 
from Tientsin to Macoa, from Macoa to 
Canton, and from Canton to U. S. A. Here 
he seems to have found contentment in be- 
coming one of us in this busy western civili- 
zation. Jen first settled down at Andovcr, 
remaining there until he was enabled to enter 
M. A. C. as an '09 man. Jen is a smart boy, 
and we wish that we had the same pull with 
some of the Faculty that he has. In accordance with his good judgment, 
Jen has elected agriculture. We wish him a prosperous future. He is

HARRY ORRISON KNIGHT. 

Otherwise known as Hairless Shoestrings Knight, was 
born in Gardner, Massachusetts, on August 1st, 1887. Gardner, 
in producing both "Mighty" and "Arry " I 

within a few years of each other, has 
stretched its fame to the widest limits. 
It can aSord to rest on its laurels for the 
next half century or so. Of the two, 
Harry is the more conservative, and"" 
yet Harry is not such a mild one as you . 
might suppose to look at him. He can 
enjoy a good time as well as any, and 
better than some. Harry did not leave 
Gardner until he had obtained a diploma 
from the Gardner High School to prove where 
he came from. With this he entered M. A. C, 
and tried out for the Baldheaded Club during the first year or so. He 
finally made it last year. It was this way : Harry slipped into the Slough of 
Despond last year and wallowed around quite a bit before help arrived. 
He was finally dragged out and medically examined, but — would you believe 
it? — aside from cold feet and a "bald" head, he was found-to be all right. 
In the joy of becoming a life member of the club, Harry soon forgot his 
tribulations. It is strange he has not made the football team, for he is well known as a " kicker. ' 
Harry is taking Agriculture, and is a member of the C. S. C. 





ROCKWOOD CHESTER LINDBLAD. 
"Lindy, Lindy, sweet as the sugar cane," etc. 
This is our favorite song, next to the college 
song. Lindy first sang it on February 21st, 1887, 
in the town of Grafton. Being one day ahead of 
George Washington, he has been saved from the 
lonely prospect of never telling a lie. Lindy 
graduated from the Grafton High School in 1904. 
He then worked in a shoe factory for a while, and 
when he had made a pair of shoes strong enough 
for the journey, he mounted "shank's mare" and 
lit out for M. A. C. Lindy has quite a head for 
Math, and is the assistant weather- 
man of the college. He has gained tf 
many points in managing the weather /r < 
from Johnny-O, and can pump the £W/ A 
inwards out of a rain cloud if rain is needed, or chase all the W/ / ' 
clouds back of the side-lines if Johnny wants to take a spin in his 
auto, and, besides, many of the other accomplishments expected 
of the weather-man. Lindy is assistant manager of this Index, 
and belongs to Kappa Sigma.

ROBERT DELAND LULL. 

There certainlywas a lull in affairs when "Bob" imposed his 
melodious presence upon his worthy parents on December 21st, 
1879. Bob undoubtedly planned this as a little Christmas gift, 
but was so anxious to see the world that he sped into 
the little town of Windsor, Vermont, four days 
early. The war between Chili and Peru broke out 
in 1879, but we don't like to lay this up against Bob, 
for he has other troubles of his own. However, 
he came home one day and held up a diploma 
from the Windsor High School. This was in 1897. 
The next few years of Bob's life are shrouded in 
mystery, but he loomed up on the horizon of the 
M. A. C. campus in the fall of '05, and was glad 
to join the husky Class of 1909. "Stealthy Steve," 
going out with a lantern one day, discovered that Bob 
was an honest man. We accordingly made him our class treasurer and have 
kept him at the job ever since. To be sure, we keep the treasury low to minimize 
temptation. Bob loves children and was found one day last year in Greenfield 
with a strange baby in his arms and a nursing bottle in his pocket. Bob owns 
the smile that won't come off. As business manager of the Index he has 
allowed none of its arduous duties or serious difficulties tc rob his face of that 
sunny smile of placid content. Bob is a member of Phi Sigma Kappa. 





GUY ERNESTUS MacGOWN. 

This lad solemnly entered the world at Amherst, New Hamp- 
shire, on December 20th, 1885. The great solemnity of that 
occasion has always hung by "Mac," and his looks to-day betray 
the seriousness of a lamp-post. However, this did not prevent 
Mac from growing up — to about six or seven feet. During this 
rapid growth Mac slowed down long enough to have a diploma 
handed to him in 1903, from the Amherst, New- 
Hampshire, High School. Having inherited a 
roving disposition — from Captain Kidd, we pre- 
sume — and also a delighful uncertainty as to 
what he ought to make of himself, during 
the next few years he lived in various 
places and followed varied vocations. 
First, he entered Burden Business Col- 
lege, Boston, which prepared him for 
work in a creamery, which he took up next. His training here en- 
abled him to take up piano tuning. We suppose that piano tuning 
naturally turned his thoughts to Agriculture, for he next made hot

Here he joined '09 and earned the name of "Speedy." There are 
no flies on Speedy. He is too quick for them. The only fly ever 
observed near Mac came off the end of his bat during our class base- 
ball game, and, flying over third base, lit somewhere near the chapel. 
That fly won the game. Mac is taking agriculture, and we wish him 
luck.

JAMES VALENTINE MONAHAN. 

On February 15th, 1882, in the town of South Framingham, 
Massachusetts, the Monahan family received a comic valentine 
in the shape of James. He was mailed on the fourteenth, but 
stopped to smoke so many times on the road that he was delivered 
late. He passed his happy boyhood days on the banks of the 
Charles, fishingfor eels and watching the sunsets. 
He managed to put in a little time at going 
to school, and graduated from the Fram- 
ingham Academy and High School in 1900. 
Here he won first prize in the smoking con- 
test. Then "Mony" lazed around for a 
few years, until the Framingham Business 
College caught his eye. Here he whiled 
away some more time, and came forth a full- 
fledged stenographer in 1904. Mony was 
not prepared to settle down to work yet, though. He got the idea that M. A. C. was a 
good place to loaf, and so threw in his fortunes with 1909. This is where Mony was 
mistaken. Although he has constantly cultivated the art of delivering, in a recitation, the 
maximum amount of "bluff" on the minimum amount of preparation, yet Billy squeezed some 
good, hard work out of him in Physics. However, it has been his native brightness which has 
pulled him through some of the other courses. Mony has never shaken off the scenes of his 
childhood, and has elected Landscape Gardening. '09 can never forget its Freshman toast- 
master. At this banquet Mony covered himself with glory as an orator. Mony's weakness 
is "iced tea." He is a member of the C. S. C, and is president of the James Raphael and 
Valentine Prevaricating Society. 





HAROLD JOHNSON NEALE. 

This molecule of gaseous vapor was first discovered in the 
town of Worcester, on November 20th, 1886. The original 
molecule expanded, took on other molecules, became molded 
by the influence of Worcester belles, and finally came to us in 
the fall of 1905 as an overextended body particle of human conceit. 
Harold tells us that he honored several schools with 
his presence and finally came up to us as a graduate 
of Worcester Academy, '04. Harold's lofty views 
of life received a shock at the onset, and he decided 
that things are seldom what they seem. Taking 
into consideration all things, Harold has done won- 
derfully well since his arrival here at M. A. C. 
In fact, it has been the making of him, and we 
look to Worcester for a vote of thanks. Harold 

played class football, basketball, and baseball for us two years. He also played 

varsity basketball and is a member'of C. S. C.

HAROLD GORDON NOBLE. 

On September 29th, 1886, this promising infant awakened 
all Springfield with his lusty and gladsome cries. We do not 
know what cravings for travel and adventure possessed him in 
his youth, but it is safe to say that the peaceful banks of the 
Connecticut River provided the sole supply for the romantic 
side of his nature to feed upon. The " inner 
man" was well sustained, however, and 
it was a hearty and well-knit lad who 
emerged from the Springfield High School 
in 1905, bearing in triumph a diploma 
from that institution. In his search for 
higher fields of effort his mind lit on M. 
A. O, and he plumped down here just in 
time to consolidate with '09. Here loftier 
triumphs awaited him, but at a greater 
cost of effort than ever before. During the first year "Nob" was forever pur- 
suing his studies without quite conquering their elusive character. His industry 
and perseverance counted for much, though, and he is now a Junior, interested 
in Forestry and bent on solving the deep secrets of that profession. Nob 
proved himself a lively sprite in college, and made the class basketball team, 
and was also on the Sophomore hop committee. He can also worry some 
sounds resembling music out of a mandolin when he is in prime condition. 
Nob sells books during the summer just to keep his hand in at talking. He 
is a human phonograph; runs off the same old record fifty times a day and 
never tires; can talk a man mad in about three minutes, and take the conse- 
sequences in about three seconds. He is one of the noisest members of the band. 





JOHN NOYES. 

A quiet name for such a blithesome youth. "Jock" first 
smiled on existence in Roslindale, Massachusetts, March 12th, 
1886. We have found it pretty hard to draw a smile out of 
Jock since, though. Yet he is known to smile softly to himself 
whenever fussing night comes around, so the girls seem to have 
better luck than we do. When Jock assumes his best clothes 
and his fussing air, he is well-nigh irresistible. They gave John 
a diploma from the West Roxbury High School in 1904, and 
then he managed to break away from Roslindale and entered 
M. A. C. with '09. Jock came here to smooth down his 
intellectual bumps, and now, after the grinding he has been 
through, we have to admit that he is about as smooth as they 
make 'em. We can all see that Jock has grown "Wilder" 
since his residence in Professor Waugh's new building. Jock 
helped out on our class basketball and baseball teams. He is a 
member of the Q_. T. V. and also belongs to the H. H. and N. C. R. H. G.

Rig-a-gig-gig and away we go! 
Heigh-o, Heigh-o, Worcester. 
462-11 "Oaky" — looses ten yards. 
If you have ever heard of Worcester you have probably 
heard of the boy orator, the representative from that district, 
and speaker of the House. "Mr. President, I rise to a point 
of order." This chap was born on April 6th, 1886, 
in the town of Worcester and graduated from the South 
High School in 1904. Oaky's pet name is 
"Corncake." He belongs to the "Baldheaded 
Club," but this does not seem to be his ambition, for 
he daily uses kerosene oil as a restorer. It was when 
Oaky was a Freshman that the Sophs had him 
out, and Rouge gave him a good walloping with a paddle, 
and Oaky has never quite forgotten this. Oaky is 
a lover of Math, and in the surveying squad one day Johnny-O found him trying to ad- 
just the cross hairs by tightening the tripod screws. "Well," says Johnnie, in that dra- 
matic way of his, "can't you find them ?" and Oaky had to admit that he couldn't. 
Oaky is the traveling show on the varsity baseball squad, but that dog trick of his has 
become an old chestnut. Jack played on the varsity and class baseball teams, and 
is a plucky athlete. He will elect Horticulture. 





JAMES RAPHAEL O'GRADY. 

Rouge, or, more properly, Mr. O'Gr'dy, was first permitted 
to behold the beauties of this world, and especially of Holliston, 
on September 5th, 1885. Rouge spent his boyhood days in his 
native town playing marbles and running foot races, and finally 
graduated from Holliston High School in 1904 with a close 
margin. Rouge is a great story-teller and joker, and in this 
respect he is in Mony's class. But there is only one subject 
upon which he is at all sensitive. Rouge has got an idea that 
he can play baseball, but where he got it no one knows. If 
he continues in his present pace he will in all probability land 
in the Bush League. However, he 
is a member of the varsity and class 
baseball teams. Rouge is a member 
of C. S. C, of the "Baldheaded 
Club," and the N. C. R. H. G., 

and chief of the Fire Department. He intends to follow in 

the footsteps of Professor Waugh. Rouge is called "Goat," 

because he butts up against so many kicks at the hash-house.

JOSEPH THOMAS OLIVER. 

"Who is the typical Dutchman? Here he is." 
This clam comes from Cushing Academy. This is ' 
poleon," or, at least, his true counterpart. As some one has 
aptly said, he has a bad eye, but lacks the courage to go 
it, and so he is perfectly harmless. He is 
dearly loved ( ?) by all the waiters in the 
dining hall. It is one of the eight wonders 
of the world how he ever got by the Faculty. 
Joe was born in the Hub City on February 
3d, 1885. He will elect Horticulture, and 
we wish him all success.

HAROLD DWIGHT PHELPS. 

This new variety of Humerus Americanus was discovered 
August 24th, 1888, in Southampton, and though many attempts 
have been made to classify it correctly, there is still some question, 
so we will call it a sport. Harold drifted down the Connecticut 
and was washed ashore , at Springfield and later he crossed 
over the river to West Springfield. Here he graduated 
from the West Springfield High School in 1905. His 
father being an alumnus of this college, young Phelps 
decided to try his luck here, and entered with '09. Oh, 
he is a wise one, all right, and we predict a clerical 
gown for his. Phelps is the most skillful fusser among '09, 
and has the distinction of being an officer in the Mount 
Holyoke Club. We wonder what scientific processes he 
follows in growing that crop of hair he carries about. 
Phelps and his whistle take pretty well with the profs here 
at present, and he hopes soon to become a member of 
Phi Kappa Phi.

RICHARD CHARLES POTTER. 

Step up, one and all, and have a look at "Gummy. " Largest 
circulation in M. A. C. "Some are born great, some achieve 
greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." How- 
ever, this robust, rolling personality has achieved his on "hash- 
house" fare since entering M. A. C. Dick rolled into the world 
as a Little — ton boy of Massachusetts, on March 5th, 1888. 
In due time he was permitted to enter the Concord High School. 
Here, according to records, he was considered quite an athlete ( ?) 
and one of literary abilities. However, we conclude that they 
were glad to get rid of him and granted him a diploma in 1905. 
Next he came to M. A. C. His vocal ingenuity soon made for 
him a position in the choir. Dick is a hard worker, having 
spent many of his happiest moments in the Chem Lab. Our 
dear "Gummy" is a great entertainer, always having several 
of the fellows out to his country estate during college recesses. He is always glad to see 
the boys, and wishes to announce that he has moved up to Cooley's. Dick is a member of the 
H. H. Society and the Q. T. V. fraternity. 





CHARLES SUMNER PUTNAM. 

A good many of the qualities for which Charles Sumner was 
renowned may be said to belong to this honorable gentleman 
and hard-working son of toil. Charlie is known for his habits 
of industry, and for the sure and steady way he has of going 
about things. When not studying, this chap may be found at 
the Horticultural Department getting hold of the prac- 
tical as well as the theoretical side of things. This 
man is a firm believer in "Teddy's" well-renowned 
"Simple Life," and strenuous as well. "Put" was 
born March 27th, 1885, at Rutland, Massachusetts. 
He later moved to the neighboring town of Princeton 
and here graduated from the Princeton High School 
in 1903. He then worked a year, previous to a 
special course in Worcester Academy. With this as 
a foundation, he has built a strong standing here 

at M. A. C, and some day we expect to hear from him occupying a place among the "Who's 

Who in America."

GEORGE FRANCIS SEXTON. 

John Maynard." "Go forward if you wish to save your life." 
This is the big fellow of Worcester. That city was startled on 
June 25th, 1886, by the howls of "Heavy," as he first looked 
out upon the wide, wide world. In 1904, either by hook or 
crook, he grabbed a diploma from English High, and, wishing 
to become a wheat, he came to M. A. C. and joined 'oq. But 
Sex had not been here a year before he had devastated some 
of the '08 bunch with a few of the fancy boxing strokes he had 
learned in Worcester. As a varsity football man he has played 
two years and delights in devouring his opponents, and for his 
ability in this line the powers have seen fit to put him on the 
All American. The only time that Sex was ever known to work 
was when he was a cop in Worcester. One day he tried to explain 
a true level line and with the help of Johnny finally came to 
the conclusion that the vertical edge of a building is a true level line. Sex has elected Agri- 
culture for want of something better. 





GEORGE MANSOOR SHAMIAE. 

This abnormal product of eastern civilization was born in 
Damascus, Syria, Turkey, on April 25th, 1883. After George 
had imbibed all of the knowledges which the High School and 
the School of Languages in Damacus could offer, he caught 
the first train west with the benevolent 
intention of dedicating his powers to 
the work of civilizing barbaric Amer- 
ica. This was no small task. In 
fact, George felt that he would be 
unfitted for the job without a thorough 
course in the I. C. S., of Scranton, Pa. 
So he absorbed their entire com- 
mercial course. George now felt fitted 
to accomplish something, and the 
only thing which remained was to 
pick out that portion of the United States which needed civilizing most. He located it at Amherst 
and decided that if he could even semicivilize M. A. C. he would not have lived in vain. 
Like most great men, George's qualities were not fully appreciated at first. He had traveled 
from Syria to Amherst via Galveston and New York, but even his broad experience from 
this cause failed to properly impress us, and so George's life here has not been without its 
troubles. We call him "Shammy" for short. Shammy is very independent and prefers 
to live in solitary splendor rather than mix with the common herd and live as they do. He ob- 
jects to having his picture taken, and has evaded the camera at every turn, and that is why 
his likeness is not represented herewith. He is crowned with a good head of hair, but also 
with "sorrow and depression," as he once told us in class meeting. After we are thoroughly 
civilized Shammy is going down to Panama to build the canal, and has elected Civil Engineer- 
ing for that purpose. We wish George a prosperous future.

MARCUS THOMAS SMULYAN. 

"Smoked Onions," otherwise known as "Sundown," came into 
being in Russia, on June 14th, 1885. The "bomb country," 
however, was a ticklish place in which to live. Thus the sad 
event came about: Marcus, as yet a mere lad, got in the way 
of a bomb intended for the Czar and woke up in Philadelphia, 
U. S. A. It was a big step for Marcus, but he has never regretted 
it. In fact, on account of it, he will probably be a big Mark, 
like Antony and Hanna. Marcus first attended the 
public schools of Philadelphia for knowledge and then 
entered the Baron de Hirsch School, graduating in 
1904. He then tried gardening in southern New 
York, but, feeling that more education would enable 
him to better solve the secrets of Mother Earth, he 
consulted his compass, and, striking due northeast, 
arrived at M. A, C. Here he placed his name on 
'09's roster. What Smulyan don't "Noah," Webster can't tell you. History, 
Physics, Pomology, and all the rest have permanent apartments in Smulyan's 
attic. He can give extemporaneous talks on any subject at any time, under any 
circumstances, for an indefinite length of time. However, Smulyan's high ideals 
are not wholly lost, and we feel that he will make good. 





JARED BREWER THOMSON. 

Jerry left those "Grand Old Berkshire Hills" that "Cros" 
tells us about, so that he, too, might become listed on the rolls 
of old '09 here at M. A. C. Jerry, having that characteristic 
western hustle, did not wait to finish his preparatory work, but 
came here after three years of study at the Searles High School. 
Great Barrington. He tells us that in town meeting one day 
he was appointed a committee of one to come here and look 
after Briggs during his four years' stay with us. However, we 
are glad that the town took this action, for Jerry has proved a 
shark, jerry was born May 9th, 1887, in Monterey. Don't 
look for Monterey, for very few besides Jerry know where it is, 
and even they won't 
let on. However, it 
is enough to imagine 
that May 9th, 1887, 

must have been a red-letter day for the town. This 

man, Jerry B., is best known for his ability to 

look out for himself. This he can do to perfection, 

and, as his modesty knows no limit, we entertain 

no fear for his future career, jerry is a member 

of the C. S.C.

MYRON WOOD THOMPSON. 

Myron was born on March 5th, 1887, and the good people 
of Halifax, Massachusetts, bestirred themselves and took notice. 
As we cannot find Halifax on the map, we think it must be that 
Myron is mistaken as to this. However, being backed up in 
this by his big brother, he assures us that he is 
correct. Myron tells us that he was graduated from 
the Bridgewater High School in 1905. Again we are 
in doubt, but guess that his good looks and winning 
airs must have got him on the right side of the ladies 
on the Bridgewater High School faculty. However, 
Myron managed to ring in with us that fall and has 
stayed. He has, with a little study and a lot of bluff, 
got by the faculty. His chief interests, however, I/* 
are devoted to fussing, and the Hamp trolley line does V 
a good business as a result. Thompy is very sincere ft , 
in his effort to have the people and the whole world come to a realization of OJ 
the full import of his personality. He is very careful never to express an opinion 
different from that of anybody else. Thompy played class football for us two 
years, was the chairman of Sophomore hop committee, is on the Index board, and 
is a member of Phi Sigma Kappa. 






HENRY WILLIAM TURNER. 

It is supposed that on July 1 6th, 1886, in Cienfuegos, Cuba, 
there was great rejoicing and celebration. Why? Turner arrived 
there on that date. Turner has never told us much about that 
day, though. Due to no lack of hospitality 
on the part of the authorities of the place, 
but merely to his roving spirit, Turner 
betook himself away and settled again in 
Teuridad. However, it soon became evi- 
dent to all good people of Teuridad that 
either they would have to enlarge the town 
or Turner would have to quit growing. 
This "Turnipo" refused to do, and so again 
betook himself away, this time in search of 
a larger country. His Amencanoid spirit 
carried him to the United States, and, realiz- 
nigies greatness and the possibilities contained therein, he decided to stop awhile. 
Here Turnipo graduated from the Newton High School in 11)05. From there his 
good sense directed him to M. A. C, where he entered with '09. "Nipo" is as 
handsome as his picture shows. He has done many a good deed for us, as one 
of the Index artists. He pulled on our rope-pull team two years, played class base- 
ball, basketball, and football for us both years; being captain of the football team our 
Sophomore year. Turnipo plays varsity football and is a member of C. S. C. and 
of I lappa Keg.

FREDERICK CHESTER WARNER. 

The little town of Sunderland voted Fred in as one of their 
number on November 9th, 1886. This town has since passed 
twenty-one repentant years, knowing no peace until three years 
ago, when they shipped Fred into M. A. C, with the rest of '09. 
However, Fred must have put in a little time at the Amherst 
High School, along with "Hub," for he says they gave him a 
diploma. Now, let's pause a moment and look at 
this, which Sunderland has so kindly sent us. 
Freddie has great muscular development, which 
is only equalled by his brain power. With both' 
he puts up a good game at varsity football, and 
besides being captain of our class rope-pull team for 
two years, he played on the class football and base- 
ball teams. Freddie has been able to fool Johnny 
in Math. Anyway, he had the crust to elect Math, 
and condescends to study it occasionally. Above all else, he is a born rough- 
houser, and is in that sort of thing with both feet at any and all times. This 
man should have an official title equal to that of any Oriental, for he holds the 
following offices: manager Fire Department, chief locksmith, chief of N. 
C. R. H. G., and president of the North College Improvement Society. Fred 
is a member of the Q_- T. V. 






THEODORE CHARLES WATERS. 

We must confess that we do not know very much about 
this youngster. He has lived among us now for many weeks, 
but, not being one of those lads that Professor Cooley used to 
tell about who "tooteth his own horn and tooteth it well," we 
don't know much more about him than we did when he 
first arrived. However, by putting him through the 
"third degree," we drew a few modest facts concerning 
his history out of him. It seems that he was born in 
Bridgeport, Connecticut, on November 1 6th, 1887. 
The next fact that he favored us with was that he grad- 
uated from the Connecticut Agricultural College in 1907. 
He evidently lived to learn, and learned to live to some 
extent during this intermediate period, however. He 
is here in search of a B. S., which he will surely capture 
in another year more. He is a member of the C. S. C.

CHARLES RUSSELL WEBB. 

This is Mary Rogers. The pleasure is all yours. "Mary" 
is one of our beloved co-eds and spends much of her time before 
the mirror. But Mary, unlike the other co-eds, is popular with 
all the fellows, and rooms in South instead of at Draper Hall. 
Her particular friend and most constant compan- 
ion is Buster, the sweater king. Webby came 
over Beaver Falls, Connecticut, on March 4th, 
1887; but the fall didn't hurt any, for we soon find 
him in Windsor Lock, Connecticut, and next in 
Worcester, the city of the thousand wonders. When 
Neale made up his mind to come to M. A. C. 
Webby came along, too, and has followed him ever 
since in all matters. Neale was Mary's better 
half until they were divorced a short time ago, and 
now Mary is leading the lonely life of a grass 
widow. That Webby is somewhat of a sport all admit, but it is rumored that 
the cause of this lies in the town of Worcester, where the object of his heart's 
desire is very single; there is just one, only one. But, although Webby, like 
the rest of us, has his failings, yet he is a fellow that we are glad to have as a classmate. He 
has rendered useful service to the class, being at one time vice-president and manager of class 
baseball, and has helped to perform the functions of the hop committee. He is a member 
of C. S. C. and the I Tappa Keg.

JAMES SIDNEY WHALEY. 

Was born in Kansas and received his name from that huge 
leviathan which swallowed Jonah in the days of yore. Kansas 
was not the place for Sidney's wild spirits to have free vent, and 
so he was seen making tracks for New Jersey while he was yet a 
youth. After some years he arrived at M. A. C. in search of 
fresh air and congenial companionship. He has found both. 
Whaley is somewhat of a sport, but in that critical way which 
shows deep-seated judgment. He always 
looks as trim and neat as the prim old maids 
of the Summer School. It is natural that he 
should be a bit sentimental, and so we are 
not surprised to learn that he practices fussing 
with that fusser of fussers, "Napoleon." 
Whaley has done many of the pen stabs for 
the Index. James is also a member of the Non- 
I 1 at Club. "Sid" is painstaking in everything that he does, and we may 
rest assured that this quality will earn for him a secure position in the upper 
strata of men.

CHARLES HOWARD WHITE 

This is the boy that makes things "hum 

head and heart for many interests. 

In fact, what does not interest 

Charlie, outside of military drill, 

is hardly of any interest at all. 

Charles doesn't believe in war. He 

would never kill even a mosquito 

if he thought there was any chance 

of reforming it. After Charles had 

been heartily welcomed by his 

parents in Hillsgrove, Rhode Island, 

on August 30th, 1885, he started right out 

what the boys were up to and has been ke 

an eye on them ever since. After thirteen 

in Hillsgrove, he moved to Providen 
change his luck. Here he attended the Friends' School, now the I 
Brown School, and in due time sought out M. A. C. to develop the practical 
side of his make-up. He was glad to join '09, and we were glad to have 
him. As class president, Charles led us through a year rife with vicissi- 
tudes. He wields the "blue pencil" on the Index board, writes hot-air 
snatches for the Signal, and trains the Mandolin Club in making discords. 
Charles is decidedly averse to all secret societies and wouldn't even join 
the Grange with Benny Barnes. Benny pointed out the good times playing 
"Tucker," but Charles remained obdurate. But he is president of the M. 
A. C. branch of that greater fraternal brotherhood, the Y. M. C. A., and aims 
to make it one of the most potent factors in college life. Charles looks for 
the good in everyone and usually can find some thread of virtue running 
through even the worst of us. It is hard to pick faults in Charlie. Probably the very worst 
that we can say of him is that he has been known to crack a joke and then laugh at it. 





HERBERT LINWOOD WHITE 

1 • Though "Herb" has not been with us long 
enough for us to know him well, we feel that 
he will fit in well with the '09 bunch and will 
eventually become consolidated with us. He 
was born September 2d, 1885, in Durham, 
Maine, and graduated from Maynard High 
School in 1902. In the fall of 1904 he joined 
'08 and stayed with them till the end of his 
Sophomore year. Last year, however, he was 
unable to return to college because of sickness, 
and so we find him with us, as 
an illustrious Naughty-Niner. 
Since returning to college 
Herb has been • elected to 
the Signal staff, and is its 
assistant editor, mighty with the pen. He seems to find satisfaction in the solitude 
own meditation, and is never seen around where there is no work to be done. He also

LUTHER GEORGE WILLIS. 

" Beef " has lived in so many different parts of the country 

that there may be a little uncertainty as to just where he was 

caught first. However, he tells us that he was born in South 

Walpole, Massachusetts, December 

19th, 1886. He was evidently meant 

for a Christmas gift. Since then he 

has wandered down to Philadelphia 

and later back again to Everett and 

Melrose. He attended the high 

schools of both of these places, but 

graduated from the latter in 1905. 

Beef entered with us here that fall 

and immediately started to rip things 

up. He made the varsity football team 

at the start, and has since remained 
a strong man on the team. Then too, he played class basketball 
for us both years and also pulled on the rope-pull team. Beef's 

principal occupation besides playing football is waking up Sam Grossman in the morning and 
looking wise in the classroom. Beef is a member of Q. T. V., the H. H. Society and the

Hurrah for Nahant! "Bill" was born in Nahant; brought 
up in Nahant; summers in Nahant; longs for Nahant; will 
return to Nahant; and die in Nahant. It was on April 8th, 1886, 
that Nahant bceame famous; " Pecko" came in with the tide. It 
was just ten years later, when "Mac" was a member of theU. S. V. 
L. S. C, that he rescued someone ( ?). This baldheaded athlete, 
as he is sometimes called, is an old salt, and likes nothing better 
than to sit and argue on things of the sea with "Beef Willis." 
Beef thinks because he sailed around the Cape the other summer, 
that he knows more than Bill, but Bill won the pennant two years 
in succession from the Nahant Yacht Club. "MacCarty" has 
the distinction of having bought more pipes than any other two 
men at M. A. C. It was when "Bill" was a Freshman 
and out for the baseball team that "Cracker" Kennedy 
caught him smoking behind the backstop and proceeded 
then and there to kick this aspiring athlete off the squad. Ask him what his number 
is. Bill's chief accomplishment lies in the manner in which he can draw noises from 
the bass drum in the band. The rest of the band isn't in it. If Bill were not a born 
sailor he could nor have steered through his courses as cleverly as he has done, but 
this has enabled him to weather many a chemical storm and mathematical gale.

The Massachusetts Agricultural College 

AMHERST, MASS. 

Has recently materially increased its facilities for high-grade work in 
practical and scientific agriculture. The cost of board and rooms is 
much lower than in the average college. Tuition is free to citizens of 
the United States, All fees are low. Students desiring to earn a por- 
tion of their expenses are given such opportunity through the student- 
labor system. 

Admission 

Certificates from approved high schools admit students without ex- 
aminations. Students who cannot be certified from approved high 
schools must pass examinations in the following subjects: English, 
French, or German; United States History and Civil Government; one 
out of the following four subjects — General History, Ancient History, 
Medieval and Modern History, English History; Algebra, through quad- 
ratics; Plane Geometry; and two of the following — Physiology, Chemis- 
try, Solid Geometry. 

College Courses 

The course of study for the first two years is required, and covers 
the subjects of English, Modern Languages, Algebra, Agriculture, Bot- 
any, Trigonometry, Chemistry, Zoology, and Horticulture. During the 
Junior year the subjects of Economics, English and Geology are required, 
and in the Senior year Bacteriology and Government. The remaining 
courses for both years are elective and cover a wide range of subjects in 
Agriculture, Horticulture, Chemistry, Botany, Entomology, Engineering, 
Veterinary Science, Landscape Gardening, English and Modern Lan- 
guages. Military drill is required for the first three years of the course, 
and is elective in the Senior year. 

Short Courses 

In addition to the regular four years' course, there is the winter 
short course of eleven weeks, chiefly in Dairy Farming; a spring course 



ADVERTISEMENTS 



of two weeks in Bee Culture, and a four weeks' Summer School of Agri- 
culture, chiefly for teachers who wish to prepare to teach agriculture in 
the elementary schools. 

Graduate Study 

There are graduate courses leading to the degrees of Master of 
Science and Doctor of Philosophy. 

Facilities for Instruction 

The library consists at present of 28,000 volumes and is particularly 
strong in the Sciences and in Agriculture and Horticulture. There is 
an extensive herbarium, one of the best collections of insects in the coun- 
try and many other similar facilities. 

The new dairy barn, built at a cost of £40 ,000. 00, is a model of its 
kind, and probably not excelled as a plant for sanitary milk production 
by any structure in the United States. 

The new building for the Department of Botany, named Clark Hall 
in honor of former President Clark, is now completed, and, with the new 
equipment recently purchased, offers one of the best opportunities for 
elementary and advanced work in Botany and Vegetable Pathology 
found anywhere. 

The Department of Horticulture has been erected into a Division 
of Horticulture, with departments of Pomology, Floriculture, Landscape 
Gardening, and Market Gardening, each department with a specialist in 
charge. New Wilder Hall, two greenhouses, and the extensive plan- 
tation of gardens and orchards make facilities for instruction in Horti- 
culture unexcelled in the United States. 

Strong work is offered in many other lines. 

A Department of Agricultural Education has recently been added. 
The college is now prepared to assist in training teachers of agriculture for 
the grades, for high schools and academies, and for colleges. 

All questions relating to entrance should be addressed to the Reg- 
istrar, P. B. Hasbrouck. Catalogue will be sent on application to 
President Kenyon L. Butteri-teld.
